Have you ever woken up and the first thing that popped into your mind was “I feel so tired”? There is nothing worse than waking up and finding yourself more exhausted than when you went to sleep. But why is it happening? Like with most things, it’s most likely a result of a few factors – one of them being food. It’s no secret that the things we eat affect our health, but they also can impact our sleep schedules. Follow along to catch more z’s and get a good night’s rest with a list of foods that help you sleep. We’ll get you up and running around and planning your wedding in no time!


Timing is Key

When you eat is one of the most important things to keep in mind. According to specialists your last bite of food should be around 3 hours before going to bed to leave time to digest everything you’ve eaten. But sometimes the munchies are inescapable! If you’re hungry before bed or wake up in the middle of the night, grab a small calorie snack like crackers with peanut butter to stabilize your blood sugar.


Things to Look For

  1. Iron. One thing is for certain, if you don’t have iron in your diet, you are accidentally signing up for bad sleep! Make sure to eat things like meat, seafood, beans, and dark leafy greens to avoid restless nights in bed.

  2. Calcium. This mineral is key for relaxing your muscles. Try eating milk, cheese, and yogurt or dairy-free products like kale and nuts.

  3. Magnesium. This one’s great for calming the body and mind. Next time you’re at the grocery store, grab some bananas, avocados, and my favorite, dark chocolate!

  4. Tryptophan. A must for a serotonin boost! Oats, peanut butter, nuts, and seeds can work wonders.

Things to Avoid

This one’s pretty obvious but we all need a reminder sometimes! Try to avoid too much sugar and caffeine, alcohol, processed foods, and big meals.
