A good night’s sleep is not just an extravagance—it’s essential for maintaining short and long-term health.

If worry and stress are keeping you up at night, you’ve probably searched high and low for information on relaxation and meditation techniques to help you salvage some valuable snooze time.

But counting sheep isn’t the only way to get yourself to sleep—what you eat right before you go to bed can also play a role. While no particular foods are known to induce sleep; knowing what, when, and how much to eat and drink can up your chances for a sound snooze.

If you have to get up at night to urinate, try urinating before you brush your teeth, and get read for bed, the go again. It might not be much but it seems there's always a little bit left. After starting this I hardly never have to get up at nigth anymore.
