How to Sleep Better (Part 4)

In part four of our five-part series, we’re throwing out tips and tricks to help you sleep better. If you haven’t already, make sure to check out the previous parts after reading this one for more sleep hacks. Each part contains two tips and are bite sized, so perfect for some quick reading. Let’s continue with tip #7.

Tip #7: Avoid large meals before bed.

While food comas definitely help us fall asleep (and very effective in doing that), large meals affect the quality of our sleep. Some people report feeling groggy, bloated, or just generally uncomfortable after waking from a meal and often need to sleep more later. It’s possible that if you have already made it a habit of eating large or heavy meals before bed that your body might be accustomed. Try smaller meals to see if this habit affects you. Some experts advocate for lunch being the largest meal during the day and dinner being smaller; however, eating and food choices are highly personal and depends on preference as well as lifestyle so what’s important is finding a system that works best for you.

Tip #8: Avoid blue light before bed.

Blue light affects the hormones that help us sleep so by being exposed it might make you less sleepy. This topic has been increasingly popular over the years as health experts encourage people to not scroll through phones before bed, avoid watching TV, or pursuing on an iPad or laptop. However, the light in your room might affect your blue light exposure as well. If you can, try to change your light to a warmer, yellower light to decrease your blue light exposure. Use blue light glasses when you can even if you can see perfectly fine without glasses.
