We’re all familiar with the dozy satisfaction of having just eaten a nice (or large) meal.  Unfortunately, while digestion does make us feel more tired, it will actually make it harder for you to fall or stay asleep.  Want to make sure you don’t sleep well?  Eat a nice big meal right before bed.  For better sleep, make sure that you finish your last meal at least a couple hours before bedtime and avoid snacking in bed.  If you can’t sleep at night and decide to get out of bed for a while to get a snack, make sure it’s something that is low in sugar and easy for you to digest.  No spicy Indian leftovers!
