Side­step in­som­nia by snack­ing be­fore bed!

Woman's World - - Wise Words -

With all the hol­i­day hub­bub, many of us have trou­ble fall­ing asleep this time of year. The fix: a choco­late treat! A British study re­vealed that sa­vor­ing brown­ies or hot co­coa be­fore bed helps you fall asleep 20 min­utes faster. Credit goes to choco­late’s mag­ne­sium, which tamps down the pro­duc­tion of brain chem­i­cals that keep you awake. OR LIGHT A CAN­DLE! Re­searchers re­port that gaz­ing at a flame for five min­utes re­leases calm­ing brain waves, cut­ting risk of rest­less sleep in half. (Just snuff it be­fore Zzzs.)
