  • The Negative Effects of Eating Before Bed

    Almost everyone gets the munchies before bed at some point. While eating a healthy, balanced snack can help you relax and sleep, overeating and eating certain foods before turning in can cause numerous problems. Learning more about these effects may prompt you to improve your habits. To avoid the need to eat during late-evening hours, aim for balanced meals and snacks throughout the day.

    Heartburn happens when acidic stomach contents rise back up into your esophagus after eating, causing a tight or burning sensation in your chest. Lying down after you eat can trigger these symptoms or make them worse. To avoid sleep disruptions associated with heartburn, Dr. Timothy Morgenthaler, a sleep specialist with Mayo.Clinic.com, recommends avoiding highly spicy and garlic-flavored foods late in the day. Overeating or eating highly acidic or fatty foods, such as tomato sauce, orange juice or fried foods, can also contribute to heartburn -- particularly if you're prone to the condition.

And with the attention that the dangers of sleep deprivation and sleep disorders has been getting in the news these days, it’s no wonder. Lack of sleep has been blamed – and rightly so – for a number of tragic accidents, for lost productivity in the workplace, for increased potential for Alzheimer’s disease and other degenerative brain diseases, for weight gain, and many more causes for serious concern. 

    Though a sleep specialist is likely to tell you that unless you have a sleep disorder, you just need to make sleep a higher priority, and that it isn’t necessary to spend money to get a good night’s sleep, it is worth looking at the ways that losing sleep is costing you, and what some of the options are that can enhance your chances for getting back to getting the rest you need.

  • Effects of Eating on Sleep Deprivation

    There is plenty of research pointing to the fact that those who cheat themselves of sleep are also sabotaging their nutritional health: Lack of sleep can wreak havoc with your ability to choose foods that are healthy, to fight the cravings for high-fat, high sugar snacks, and even to recognize when you’re satiated. But not much is said about whether the process can be reversed. Can making smart food choices help you get a better night of sleep? Continue reading

  • Prioritizing Sleep Is A Top Stress Buster

    Stress is a normal part of life, and describes any kind of change that the body undergoes in reaction to outside events. The truth is that some stress can be good, keeping us alert and out of danger, but for the most part the term has come to have a negative connotation, and to be used as a description of a physical, mental or emotional reaction that causes harm. Stress can result in the creation of physical conditions such as headache, stomachache and cardiovascular problems, and when people turn to substances such as alcohol or tobacco in response to stress, these conditions can be exacerbated.
