Be Smart About Booze

8 Mar

A nightcap can certainly make drifting off to sleep easy, but as soon as that alcohol gets metabolized, you may wake up.
Drink before sleep and you’ll get less REM sleep, the deep dream state that we need for good rest.
Another thing to know: Levels of alcohol high enough to impair sleep differ among individuals–so your mate may sleep like a log after hoisting a drink or two, while you may toss and turn.
Your best bet is to schedule last call 2 or 3 hours before heading to bed.
