Most of us enjoy a cup of coffee to help shake off the sleepies. In reality though, the coffee we’re drinking could be affecting the way you sleep at night.
According to Dr. Carmel Harrington, Managing Director of Sleep for Health and In Essence Ambassador, says consuming coffee late in the day can be detrimental to your sleep.
“If you want to get your sleep on track, quit the caffeine after midday and if you can’t come to terms with cutting out coffee after midday, try substituting it with the decaffeinated variety instead.”
The Dr. continues, “This is especially important if you are in the over 35 age group because as we age, our metabolic rate slows so the coffee that didn’t affect our sleep when we were younger could certainly be doing so now.”
If you are an avid coffee drinker, there are a few things you can do to try and counter the effects of the caffeine. Simply changing your bedtime routine an hour before bed and drinking water throughout the day has had positive results on the body.
