One problem is that many of us continue to be distracted by the electronic devices we have our faces buried in during the day while we are in bed. If you still can’t get to sleep after putting your smartphone down, the problem may be what you ate earlier that evening. Certain food can keep us awake and a recent article has also pointed out a few that can help you get to sleep. We know it’s unwise to drink coffee or eat chocolate before bed as they both have caffeine, but did you know that cherries contain melatonin, which promotes sleep? Bananas are both a healthy snack and contain magnesium and potassium, which help muscles relax. As a final suggestion, you may want to consider that bowl of cereal before you go to bed instead of in the morning as simple carbs can help us get to sleep.
