According to Men’s Health Magazine, good old mom may have had it all wrong when she offered us a glass of warm milk to help aide our sleeping. The protein in milk could actually boost alertness rather than calm it.
Instead the magazine’s experts offer the following snacks to induce “feel-good relaxation chemicals” thereby calming your nerves and slowing your brain down towards relaxation: nonfat popcorn, oatmeal with sliced bananas, one cup of plain yogurt with two tablespoons mixed nuts, sesame seeds, pretzels, 4-oz. glass of unsweetened cherry juice, and red bell peppers.
Not only is a good night’s rest good for your overall well-being, but it is also helpful to keep a youthful appearance and will it will also help you to feel younger, too.
So, pass on the glass of warm milk tonight and opt for any of the above snacks for that peaceful night’s sleep. Good night!
