Scarlett O’Hara used to say, “I’ll think about it tomorrow.” And sometimes she was mistaken. There are many things that we do in the morning like taking a shower, but research shows that it’s actually better to do them in the evening. And there’s a bonus in the end that explains how we can get good sleep with the help of a pencil.
Bright Side gathered 12 things that we should do at night to make our morning much brighter and better.
12. Eating meat or cottage cheese
If you don’t eat a few hours before you go to bed, you won’t sleep well. It’s good to eat some meat or cottage cheese because both products contain a lot of protein and tryptophan (the amino acid thatcontributes to good sleep). A large portion of vegetables is not a good alternative because you may get bloated.
- Hunger often causes insomnia and if you go to bed without having dinner you’ll probably need a large breakfast. Besides, it’s difficult to sleep when your stomach keeps growling.
Take a stroll before going to bed. It will help you “step over” all the worries of the day. You can enjoy silence and think about things that bother you. Also, evening strolls are proven to be good for health and they help cope with insomnia.
- New ideas or extraordinary solutions to problems may come to your mind while you walk. That’s why Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, and Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, like evening walks.
