Make Your Evening Meal Ideal For Sleep

Do you get to bed at a reasonable hour but still toss and turn during night?  Your dinner may be the problem.  If you suffer from late-night indigestion and want a drugless solution, focus on the time and the contents of your last meal.

Time of last meal…
When do you go to bed?  If you usually retire at say, 10, make sure you allow time for your food to digest before hitting the sack.  Eat your last meal three hours before bedtime.  And if you need a little something right before you close your eyes, enjoy a hot cup of herbal tea.

Contents of last meal…
Now, let’s look at your dinner plate.  Most likely, you’re less active at night, so eat less for dinner than your other daytime meals.  Avoid large servings of starchy foods like bread, rice, pasta and potatoes, and reduce your portions of meat.  And if you must consume caffeine, do so in the morning.  Caffeine, a stimulate, can keep you wide awake, while trying to catch your Zs.  And remember, chocolate contains caffeine.

Sleep is essential to good health, so it’s imperative that you get your required hours.

Consider This
On the lighter side:  
Are you so good at sleeping that you can do it with your eyes closed?  Ha!

Take Action
Tonight set a loving intention for yourself by tweaking the time and content of your evening meal.  Take a deep, cleansing breath.  Now close your eyes and visualize how this lifestyle change can prepare you for your amazing second half.
