  • Night-time Snacking: Always one should have night-time light food early. This would give enough time for us to digest food right before we go to bed. Having snacks in the night before bedtime cause a disorder by the name gastro-esophageal reflex. It increases the acidity in the stomach, which in turn causes stomach discomfort.

  • Talking too Much: Now-a-days, people don’t get enough time to talk to their spouses. So, they devote some time for this while lying on the bed. This is to some extent acceptable provided it does not go into the heated arguments. If this spurt of argument arises, it leads to increased energy levels and stress hormones in blood. This situation keeps you awake for a long period of time in the night. Hence, it needs to be avoided.
