Health Tip: If Lifestyle Interferes With Sleep

(HealthDay News) -- Your evening routine may be affecting how easily you fall asleep and stay asleep.

The National Sleep Foundation says problematic habits include:

  • Eating a late dinner, especially a heavy one. Doing so can trigger heartburn, which may affect sleep.
  • Watching TV in bed, as the device's blue light may interfere with your body's melatonin production.
  • Going to bed with a smartphone. Checking email or social media can make you feel stressed when you're trying to wind down.
  • Eating a sugary bedtime snack. Coming down from a sugar high may wake you in the middle of the night.
