If you usually eat spicy food before going to bed, this is absolutely for you.

Some people have the habit of eating food immediately before going to bed which is not good for health. There are some things that you should not do before going to bed, which I will be listing them below.

1.Eat Spicy or Fatty foods: Having a large meal too close to bedtime can make falling asleep uncomfortable if you are bloated or painfully full,spicy or fatty foods may be particularly risky because they are associated with acid reflex,which often rears its head when a person lies down at night. Ideally,you should have dinner at least two hours before going to sleep says Grander,to give your body enough time to begin digesting it. If you are not careful,late Night snacking can lead to weight gaining.

2.Drink booze: Alcohol tricks you into thinking you will sleep better,because it often makes you drowsy and makes it easier to fall asleep,says Dr Rosenberg. But as your body begins to metabolise the alcohol,REM sleep,the period whore our sleep is most restorative,is reduced,Dr Rosenberg's advice;for most people,its okay to have a drink or two with dinner but skip the night cap or the glass of wine the couch right before bed.

3.Play video games: The science on television's effects on sleep is somewhat inconclusive,some studies shows that watching TV before going to bed can disrupt sleep(due to its melatonin impairing blue light,its mental stimulation ,or both),while others shows that it has little effect. Electronic media that requires alot of interaction like video games can definitely wreck havoc on your slumber.

Stimulation from these devices can excite the brain,which presents a challenge when it comes to trying to fall asleep.
