In times of stress, it is important to be mindful of what you are putting into your body and the potential it has to create a cascade of other issues in your life which only increase stress all the more.
Stop drinking a few hours before bed to give your body time to metabolize the sugar and booze.
Keep in mind that sugars are energy sources, and we don’t need much extra energy late in the day when preparing our bodies and brain for sleep.
Added sugar is worse simply because it’s far easier to consume in large quantities rather than natural sugars—such as raw honey or pure maple syrup—which are found in whole foods that are typically rich in fiber and other nutrients.
Nuts contain magnesium and zinc that collectively promotes better sleep and prevents sleeplessness.
