4 A sleepy meal at dinnertime

If you want to have a good night’s sleep, try not to overload your digestive system. Your discomfort might keep you up all night long. About 90 minutes before you want to nod off, head to the kitchen for a light sleepy-time snack. You’d better limit the amount of water you drink before bed to prevent night trips to the toilet.

Moreover, there are many foods that promote sleep. They include melatonin, magnesium, and tryptophan. Chamomile tea or warm milk with honey is practically a sleeping pill. For dessert, you can try some bananas. In addition to soothing melatonin, and serotonin, bananas contain magnesium that is a good muscle relaxant.
