What to Drink Before Bedtime

Drink This For the Best Night's Sleep Ever

You may think that your nighttime nightcap routine isn't affecting your sleep patterns, but guess again. To be sure you're sipping beverages that are going to help you out, instead of hinder you from catching some solid Zs, check out these recommendations that will help curb late-night cravings.

  1. Instead of green tea, drink herbal: White tea may not seem like a real culprit, but guess again; while farther down the stimulant scale, it still contains brain-buzzing caffeine. Just grab some chamomile or peppermint tea to help you calm down before bed. We're also loving Sleepy Time Extra over here these days!
  2. Instead of orange juice, drink tart cherry juice: Lots of juices like orange have a high sugar content that's going to keep you up and moving. The exception to the rule comes in the form of tart cherry juice. Cherry juice actually contains melatonin, which can assist you in getting some much-needed rest.
  3. Instead of booze, go for some warm milk: You may think that drink is going to help you chill out in bed, but instead, it can do just the opposite and keep you up or make for a restless night of sleep. Instead of trying to get comfort in something boozy, a warm glass of milk will calm you down in a nostalgic, G-rated way. This may be a tough switch, but your body will thank you for it later.
