6. Eat dinner before 7:30pm
Depending on your bed time, it is imperative you eat at least 3 to 4 hours before you go to bed. Lying down too quickly following a meal can lead to heartburn, acid reflux and indigestion. As the metabolism slows down in the evening, your body must work hard to digest the food that was recently eaten. This can lead to disrupted sleep and leave you feeling lethargic the next morning. Avoid red meat, junk food, processed foods and opt for whole grains, soups, fruit and vegetables.

7. Get at least 7 to 8 hours sleep
Sleep is a period where a lot of important processing, restoration and strengthening occurs. Unfortunately, you can’t make up for lost sleep. The best thing for your body is a healthy, consistent routine that meets your sleep needs (almost) every night!
