1. Drink Coffee After Dinner
It’s the caffeine. It was perfect with that apple pie. But at 3 a.m. when you’re still awake? Not so much. Caffeine lurks in lots of places like tea, chocolate, soda, and energy drinks.
2. Drink Alcohol
A “nightcap” is the perfect way to end the evening, right? Wrong. Alcohol messes with deep sleep, which is important for restfulness, memory, and other things your brain does. It can make you drowsy enough to fall asleep, but it often wakes you up just a few hours later.
