Sleep Advice: 5 Foods To Help You Snooze

“Hi, I think that depends on why you can't sleep, and what your pattern is. Yes, it's true you shouldn't eat a big meal before bed. But a small snack--a tablespoon of peanut butter, or 12 almonds--can help prevent blood sugar fluctuations that can interfere with sleep.”

“Hi Ed and Deb, thanks for the post. I can't go to bed with anger, fear, worry, or any consuming negative emotion--even when I'm going to bed alone. Sleep makes them take root, then dreams throw Miracle-Gro on them. By morning, I have a full-on jungle of bad emotions. I have to talk them out with myself before I go to sleep. Or, better yet, I write out my anger or fear, and then turn it over--to god, the universe, spirit, creator, whatever--and ask him/her/it to take it, fix it, or get rid of it. Amazing how well this works for me.”

“Hi Ed and Deb, thanks for the great post. I can't go to bed with anger, fear, worry, or any consuming negative emotion--even when I"m going to bed alone. Sleep magnifies and intensifies these emotions for me, and my dreams just throw MIracle-Gro on them. I have to talk out my negative emotions wiith myself. Better yet, I write out my anger or fear, and then turn it over--to god, the universe, spirit. creator, whatever--and ask him/her/it to take it, fix it, or get rid of it. Amazing how effective this is for me.”

“You know, I eat so-called "boring" foods too--lots of plain old fruits and vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, a little whole grain. But then, when you think about it, can your rightfully call asparagus, fresh figs, blackberries, avocado, ripe pears or walnuts boring? I find them rich, indulgent and sensuous ~”

“I"m not a milk drinker, but it works for some people. if you do drink milk, of course, always buy organic, preferably from a small, local dairy, or from pasture-raised cows--it's the cleanest choice. Milk is rich in tryptophan, and it's soothing, warm, and reminiscent of childhood comforts. Moderation is key here...Thanks for your post, WarriorArtist!”

“Well, but, chocolate is good for everything, isn't it? Maybe it's because it's soothing and comforting; you fall asleep more easily ~ Chocolate usually affects people with caffeine sensitivities more strongly. It's the sugar in chocolate that makes it hard for some people to sleep; darker chocolate, though it's "stronger" and has more caffeine, is also lower in sugar and doesn't bother some people.”

“Supplemental magnesium also seems to work for most people with sleep disturbances, especially those with sudden and abrupt awakening from sleep; twitching and jerking; restless or "jumpy" leg syndrome; and insomnia related to headaches. Thanks for your post ~”

“I've followed Broda Barnes work for years, and interviewed people from the foundation; they've done amazing work. I used to wake up at 3 a.m. with a headache--low blood sugar seemed to be the culprit, and a spoonful of almond butter before bed worked for me. Thanks for mentioning Barnes ~”

“Hi Lisa -
I would add that those with hypoglycemia might also want to check their iodine levels with a urine loading test. The majority of women tested so far have been found to be deficient.”

“I agree ~ it's usually what's eating us that causes weight gain, low energy and disease. I'm not sure we'd be seeing the current crimes--from high-fructose corn syrup to trans fats to genetically modified hormones in meat--or the current rates of obesity and diabetes if we all ate intuitively.It's a process, sometimes a long one--but worthy!”

“My fantasy is to be a best-selling book author, but that's not what I am acting out. This year, I will be acting out the fantasy of my Star Wars-obsessed little boy, by dressing as Padme Amidala. For those of you who aren't buffs (I was not, until my son saw The Empire Strikes Back), Padme is the mother of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.

LIke all things in life, this situation could be much worse. He could have chosen for my character the evil Ventress. Or, even more tragic, he could have named me as Princess Leia, in which case I would have had to wear cinnamon buns on the side of my head. As it is, he sees me as a beautiful queen, a stately and elegant being in long, flowing robes, the brave mother of a hero. His father, on the other hand, is Darth Vader. On this, I will not comment.”

“I love this one! Of course, I love all your articles, but this one moved me in a different way. I think of my little boy, who both runs and skips, and the complete delight he can find in the smallest things: a beautiful leaf, a rubber ball, an ant laboring under the weight of a breadcrumb as it trudges along the concrete. When do we lose that natural sense of joy and wonder? Does it just slip gradually away from us? And why is it so hard to regain? Your articles make me question my own ways of being, look deeper inside myself, and move more mindfully through the world. Thank you.

Love, Lisa”

You are a brilliant writer- I know you write for various magazines- this is like poetry

Your son Aidan is full of life- and so hug-able - I have to repeat wht you wrote-
