Sleep. It is something we all need but many of us don’t get enough of it. But getting enough of it is so important for our overall health.
When we’re getting our zzz’s, our body rests, recovers, and recharges. It builds muscles, repairs cells, and allows the brain to form memories and improves recall.
But did you know that what you eat, and when, affects how you sleep?
“It might seem obvious why a double espresso after dinner might disrupt your sleep that night — as might a greasy, late-night cheeseburger with fries. However, the connection between a noontime salad and your slumber is somewhat less straightforward — but it’s an important one” – Ana Krieger, MD, MPH, Medical Director of the Centre for Sleep Medicine, New York-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine.
