Stay away from alcohol at bedtime
“I do occasionally like vino at night,” says Pugliese, but she cautions against drinking alcohol before bedtime since it’s a culprit for shallow sleep. Indeed, she’s right yet again. Consuming alcohol may help you to relax and fall asleep in the short term; however, your overall sleep cycle will be disrupted. Alcohol prevents you from entering the deeper stages of sleep, which is why you may wake up still feeling tired even though you were in bed for a significant amount of time. Skip the glass of wine at dinner so you’re not robbed of a good night’s rest.
