Recommendation for sleep improving

Three healthy habits that may also improve sleep: Shed a few kilograms, enjoy more fish, and eat light suppers.

If you’re plagued by insomnia or poor-quality sleep, stop focusing on your lack of shut-eye and consider these lifestyle changes to improve your well-being. What’s good for the body seems to be good for the bedroom. These three lifestyle changes, with proven health benefits, have also been found to improve sleep.

  • Lose weight. Losing 5 to 10 percent of your total body weight (if you’re overweight) brings with it big health benefits, including lower blood pressure, blood LDL cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Researchers have learned that a sustained 5 percent drop in weight can also stop the progression of sleep apnea, a condition that impedes breathing, disrupts sleep and has a negative effect on the health of your cardiovascular system.
  • Increase your omega-3s. Getting more omega-3s (either by supplementation or through your diet) has already been shown to improve cardiovascular health and reduce inflammation. Now it’s thought to improve sleep quality as well.
  • Make dinner a light meal. Eating a light supper is better for digestion, prevents weight gain and can help you sleep more easily.
