Sleep Tips From Randi K.
Eat before sleep is not the healthiest, however sometimes we just need a snack before bed. I often get home late from work and need to eat a little something, but am careful in my selection so I don’t interrupt my sleep pattern. Eating a snack that is healthy and balanced can actually help with a more peaceful rest. Eating a large meal or drinking alcohol/caffeinated beverages before sleep can cause heartburn, possible weight gain and insomnia.
