300913 Taking control of your sleep
The experts at Tuffs University make the following recommendations for getting a better night’s sleep.
Finish your last meal or snack at least two to three hours before you go to bed at your regular time.
Keep your daily diet clean with healthy well-balanced meals and snacks. Avoid, as much as possible, or keep to a minimum refined sugars because they stimulate the body thus making it harder to sleep.
Avoid nicotine in any form from any source. This should be self-evident to anyone with half a brain but some people still have a caffeine loaded drink or food and can’t understand why they are unable to sleep afterwards. Get a clue people; caffeine is a stimulant, that’s why.
