Drink that Science

Let me start by saying that I am not an alcoholic. I do not have a drinking problem, nor do I have an addiction. However, I will tell you that alcohol is a problem for more of you than you probably are aware of. Alcohol may be the cause of that body composition rut, exercise plateau or sleep problem you are suffering from.

3 Things to Avoid with Sleep Hygiene + Naturals: Part 2

Generally, eating well will help with your sleep. If you stuff yourself with garbage and lie down, you shall wake up and feel awful. If you eat acidic food or things that induce GERD you are also likely to wake up with indigestion roughing up that work you have done to sleep properly. Eat clean and separate your last meal form bedtime by 3 hours or more to allow for digestion.

Limit or avoid alcohol entirely! Sorry, but drinking alcohol is NOT helping your sleep. Similar to anti-anxiety drugs and sleep aides, alcohol increases GABA receptors in the body signaling to the brain to calm down and eventually limiting consciousness.
