8 Everyday Habits That Are Wrecking Your Sleep

3. Overeating before bed

8 Everyday Habits That Are Wrecking Your Sleep

If your biggest meal takes place after 3 PM it means you are a late eater. Several studies have shown that there’s a link between late eating and acid reflux and indigestion which in turn affects your sleep quality. Late eating is also related to weight-loss difficulty, and obesity can cause sleep apnea and other sleeping disorders.

Instead: Avoid eating big meals 3 hours before going to bed. Deserts and junk foods are not to be snacked in the evening. Drink chamomille tea without sugar.

4. Ignoring your caffeine curfew

8 Everyday Habits That Are Wrecking Your Sleep

Caffeine tricks your body into believing it’s not tired and while the effect might wear off after a few hours, your body actually still has a lot of caffeine to deal with, even for the next 10 hours after your espresso. Unfortunately, a lot of people is unaware that coffee isn’t the only caffeine packed drink. Chocolate, energy drinks, most teas and sodas are high caffeine providers. Even hot cocoa contains enough caffeine to prevent from sleeping soundly.

Instead: Limit your caffeine consumption and try only drinking it in the morning. The less you drink, the better it kicks in when you actually do! So it’s a win-win situation.
