Eating Healthy Can Help With Insomnia
by Abby Johnson
one of them can be your eating habits. The food you eat does play a part in how your
body prepares itself to sleep. Different foods will cause different reactions in your body.

A good way to help you understand how foods play a part in insomnia is to write a
journal. All you need to do is write down everything that you eat during your day and
the times that you are eating it. Also write down how you slept, was it a sound,
peaceful sleep? Was it a restless night? Include the length of time you slept also and
then you will see a pattern forming from your daily intake of food and the quality and
amount of the sleep that you had. This will guide you into being able to avoid certain
foods that don’t agree with your sleep pattern and include more of the foods that
seem to produce better results for you.

Everyone is different but there does seem to be some foods that are universally
known to help induce and promote good sleep quality. This list can help you identify
some of these but keep in mind that your body chemistry is unique, only research will
help you find the best diet for you.

Milk really does help you sleep. So that old saying about a glass of warm milk before
bed is definitely true, milk does have a chemical in it that helps you sleep.

Fruits seem to have a way to help promote a sound sleep. Lemons seem to be the
most effective fruit.

Breads, preferably whole grain breads seem to have the most positive effect. But all
bread products including, bagels and muffins are included.

As stated before every individual has a different body chemistry and finding what
works for you may take some trial and error. Sometimes the natural sugar in foods
will cause some people to toss and turn but in others it may not have that same
effect. Of course we all know that consuming caffeine or processed sugars late in the
day are not very good choices for promoting a good night sleep. Keeping a journal will
help you identify what works for your body chemistry, what may help you get a good
restful sleep and what to avoid.

Controlling your insomnia with a good diet is the healthiest and most natural way to a
better nights sleep.
