I’m sitting here in my car in the parking lot at work looking at today’s daily prompt wondering what it prompts me to write.
I arrive at work early. well, I leave the house early to avoid being caught in traffic. It’s amazing how leaving the house 5 minutes later makes such a big difference in traffic. If I leave the house later than 7:15am, I will be late. And if I leave about 7:10am, I arrive 25 minutes early. It’s pretty amazing!
But back to snack. What’s been on my mind lately is how to adjust my eating habits so that what I eat supports my sleep. I’m discovering new (to me) snacks that support sleep. A couple snack ideas are pretzels and corn chips. These snacks have a high glycemic index which raise your insulin levels which somehow helps you drop off at night. I’m still not clear on when is the best time to have this snacks..a few hours before sleep? when I’m not able to sleep? When I awake in the night?
So I’m doing a lot of research because I am determined to sleep better.
