Check out the Lifestyle Including the Eating Habits

Even if one is already at an older age, it is still better to consider having a healthy meal and a regular exercise. According to Sleep.org, regular exercise has a dramatic effect on one’s sleep. It is proven to reduce stress and may tire one out which may yield a good night sleep.   

Aside from regular exercise, having a healthy diet can also increase the quality of one’s sleep. According to another study conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, food intake is also related to sleep. It has been found out that those who do not get enough sleep are people who have bigger appetites and also have a large amount of caffeine intake. This is because leptin level goes down if one has a bigger appetite. Leptin is a hormone that regulates appetite. In addition, caffeine also disrupts sleep due to its stimulant effects. Therefore, it is recommended to lessen, or as much as possible, phase out the intake of caffeine 6 hours before bedtime.
