Instead of eating some unhealthy snacks, unhealthy sandwich or chocolate, it would be smarter to follow these few tips before you stress your stomach.
The best choice for a meal before going to bed is oatmeal with milk. Yes, it does not sound delicious and appealing, but it will saturate you. Beside there are enough carbohydrates that release serotonin, which will help you to rest your brain and sink into sleep.
Eat a little low-fat cheese. The magnesium of the cheese will calm your brain and will improve your sleep quality. With a few crackers or toast, you’re ready for a peaceful sleep.
Similar action has the nuts, which is full of magnesium, so before bedtime have some walnuts, almonds or peanuts. Of course, do not overdose the quantity.
Besides food, there are drinks that have a similar effect, as the juice from the cherries. 2 cups a day, one in the morning and one at night, would raise the level of melatonin which improves the sleep.
Finally, the oldest recipe in the world – a cup of milk. Milk contains tryptophan, an amino acid that enhances your sleep.
