Avoid Late Night Snacks
Rawls-Meehan says eating a big meal right before bed can make it difficult to fall asleep, and make your sleep less restful once you do doze off. For optimal rest, aim to stop eating at least two hours before bed. If you feel a twinge of hunger come on after hours, opt for foods like cherries, tomatoes, walnuts, olives, barley, strawberries, and milk which contain melatonin, and can help you fall asleep.
