Foods To Help You Sleep At Night

Most of us are working long and stressful days which makes switching off and falling asleep quite a challenge.

With new research now saying we need more sleep now than we ever did to combat the stress of working, it is time to make sure that you get the best night’s sleep.

If you are struggling to get to sleep at night then there are a number of things you can try to find yourself a better night’s sleep.

You can make sure your room is the right temperature, invest in some new pyjamas or even change your bed to a Tempur bed from Booths Furniture Ltd.

Once all these changes have been made you can also improve your chance of a great night’s sleep by eating certain foods before you go to bed. Here are just a few for you to try:

A Handful of Almonds

Almonds aren’t everyone’s favourite treat but with your new Tempur Bed installed you will want to enjoy it by enjoying the most relaxing sleep you have had yet.

Almonds are a great source of magnesium which is needed for you to have a good night’s sleep because it helps relax your mind. Just make sure to be careful eating almonds and obviously avoid them if you have a nut allergy.

Whole Wheat Bread

Carbohydrates are great at raising the brains levels of tryptophan which can make you extra sleepy. Like eating too much whole wheat pasta and falling into a pasta food coma, whole wheat bread can help to reduce you into a relaxed and sleepy state.

Honey In Tea Or On Toast

Honey can not only help to sooth your throat but it can have quite a calming effect on you just before bed. The honey works to relax the alertness of your brain and lulling you into sleep.

It is a common choice for people who are fighting colds or coughs who drink honey with boiling water and lemon as an alternative to tea. However, you can opt for honey on toast and get the best of both sleep inducing whole wheat bread and honey.

Dark Chocolate

Unlike milk chocolate, dark chocolate contains serotonin which relaxes your body and mind. Dark chocolate might taste bitter to some people but its benefits extend not only to being sleep inducing but to improving digestion and skin tone.

Dark chocolate is also a great snack for those trying to diet and snack on things that are lower in fat and sugars.

Turkey Dinner

This may just be one of those foods that is in the right place at the right time but it has been suggested that Turkey is great at helping you have a great night’s sleep.

This might be because of those food comas we all fall into after a turkey Christmas dinner or it could just be that this lean meat has just the right nutrients to not send your brain into a sugar over drive.

With all these foods to try it looks like you will be getting a great night’s sleep tonight. Just make sure to set an alarm before you are dreaming your way through the day!
