There is a clear connection between sleep and sugar, unfortunately most people don’t see this connection or don’t realize that sugar is preventing them from getting a restful night sleep.
If you look at it as sugar being a stimulant then it might help you understand why have sugar throughout the day and especially at night will keep you up or prevent you from getting into that deep REM sleep.
It’s important to pay attention to our daily habits, for example if you’re regularly having sugary drinks and snacks right before bed while you’re watching your favourite netflix series or a movie.
Changing your habits to healthier ones will certainly make a difference.
