No one wants to miss a moment of World Series games, so follow these steps to make sure you feel good Wednesday, despite a late night cheering on the Astros.
Limit caffeine and alcohol
Dr Ritwick Agrawal, assistant professor of sleep medicine at Baylor, said the most important thing during play is to limit caffeine and alcohol.
Drinking too much can lead to poor quality sleep and leave you feeling tired and groggy the next day. Even though many people mistakenly think that alcohol helps them sleep, Dr. Agrawal assures you that is not true.
âThe quality of sleep will be very disturbed and it will not be very refreshing when someone wakes up the next morning,â he explained.
Just three or four times a week of exercise can give you an energy boost, as well as it can improve the quality of your sleep later on.
Catch up on your sleep when you can
He says taking the time to catch up the next day or on weekends helps reduce short-term sleep loss.
âIt’s good to make up for lost time later, but you can’t do it consistently week after week, day after day. It’s just an occasional loss, and your body has enough reserves to make up for this occasional loss, âsaid Dr Agrawal.
Take the screens out of the bedroom
Not only does it provide a distraction that keeps you awake, but the blue light is a threat to your natural hormones which make you drowsy.
Get back to the routine
In general, the best thing for your sleep health is to go to bed within 10-15 minutes of the same time each night.
Making an exception for the World Series is fine – as long as you get back to that regular routine.
