We’ve all heard of a midnight snack, and I’m sure many of us have indulged in such snacks from time to time. However, eating late at night and/or close to bedtime isn’t the best idea for a number of reasons. Here are some reasons why you should considering skipping your next midnight snack:
- When you eat close to bedtime, you put your digestive system to work. This means that it starts turning your food into energy, which could make it difficult to fall asleep.
- Some studies have shown that eating before bed could contribute to weight gain as most of the food you eat sits in your body, and your metabolism slows down while you sleep.
- Snacking before bed can lead to digestive issues such as heartburn and indigestion, not only making it more difficult for you to sleep, but also making you uncomfortable in the process.
- Snacking before bedtime often goes hand-in-hand with other habits that inhibit your sleep, such as watching tv, getting your laptop, or browsing the internet on your phone.
If you do decide to have a snack before bed, be sure to avoid foods high in sugar and limit the portion size of your snack.
If it’s your mattress, and not your midnight snacks, that are causing you to toss and turn at night, be sure to come see us at Factory Mattress and Bedrooms in Rocky Mount, NC.
