MONROE, The. (KNOE) – The holiday season can have a hard effect on your body when you are not getting enough sleep.
Dietitian Jen Avis says experts recommend that you sleep 7 to 9 hours a night, but she says it can be difficult to get so much when you have a busy schedule.
By not getting enough sleep, Avis says it weakens your immune system and makes you more prone to disease.
Avis says there are some things you can do to help you fall asleep. She says that eating pistachios can give your body some additional melatonin. Avis also recommends Sleepytime Extra Tea and substitute the amino acid glycine for sugar because it can help you feel tired.
Glycine is a sweet alternative to sugar, and it looks exactly like granulated sugar. Avis says you can buy it online or at a health food store.
