Late Dinner

Late dinners are more dangerous than anyone can think. Our body needs some time to digest the food. Having a late meal at night can disrupt digestion, make you feel less satisfied, hamper your weight loss, and make you overeat.

Dinner should be done by 8 pm. This will allow the body to digest the food easily. Our body’s metabolism slows down during the evening due to exhaustion and lack of activities.

De Hydration

Hydration is also one of the important aspects. Everyone should take a glass of water half an hour before having dinner. Although it is advisable to drink water after an hour of dinner, it could affect our deep sleep, as we may often urge to urinate during bedtime.

Therefore, substituting it with another liquid will work. We can have a glass of milk with a little haldi, a pinch of black pepper, and a sip of warm water to wash your palate. Such healthy habits have to be formed to keep our bodies hydrated throughout the day.

It will be better to drink water an hour before bedtime. So, the bladder gets the chance to be emptied before sleep time.

Exposure to the digital screen

We should not use any digital screen like mobile phones, computers, or television before going to bed. All these will keep our mind active and may delay our bedtime, as we tend to sit for long hours. Spend some time with family and interact with loved ones.
