Rather than felling full from eating unhealthy snacks, an unhealthy sandwich or chocolate, it would be smarter to follow these tips before you stress your stomach out!
The best choice for a meal before bedtime is oatmeal with milk. Yes, it might not sound tasty or attractive but it will make you feel full. Besides, it has enough carbohydrates that release serotonin, which will help to calm the brain and fall asleep.
You can also eat cheese that is low in calories. The magnesium in the cheese will calm the brain and it will improve the quality of your dreams.
With a few crackers or toast, you’re ready for peaceful sleep. Nuts, which are full of magnesium also have effects, so before bedtime snack on some walnuts, almonds or peanuts. Of course, don’t overdo it too much.
Besides food there are drinks that have a similar effect, like juice from sour cherries. Two glasses daily, one in the morning and one at night, will increase the level of melatonin, which improves sleep.
Finally, the oldest recipe in the world – a glass of milk! Milk contains the amino acid tryptophan, which improves sleep.
