Castoff Caffeine

e4109819979113112e11401331d7c732-huge-hnIt's day 3 of the Healthy Sleep challenge. 

Today's tip is castoff caffeine. 

Although caffeine can give you the boost you need to power through a long day or shift, studies suggest you should cut off caffeine consumption 6 hours before you plan to turn in for the night.

Just like caffeine can interfere with sleep, so can water. Although drinking water is important and you should be sipping it throughout the day, try to limit how much you drink the 2 hours before bed. Drinking too much of any liquid can make you wake often to use the bathroom and contribute to a restless sleep.
