It may be time to change your habits
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Your evening routine may be affecting how easily you fall asleep and stay asleep.
The National Sleep Foundation says problematic habits include:
- Eating a late dinner, especially a heavy one. Doing so can trigger heartburn, which may affect sleep.
- Watching TV in bed, as the device's blue light may interfere with your body's melatonin production.
- Going to bed with a smartphone. Checking email or social media can make you feel stressed when you're trying to wind down.
- Eating a sugary bedtime snack. Coming down from a sugar high may wake you in the middle of the night.
