Are you tired of feeling tired? Do you feel like a zombie walking around during the day because you can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep? Well, fear not! Professor Russell Foster, a self-proclaimed sleep guru and expert in circadian rhythm, has some simple tips for you to follow to get the best night’s sleep possible. Because who needs sleep anyway?
The Late-Night Munchies
First up on Foster’s list is avoiding those late-night cravings that convince you to have a snack or even a full-blown meal before bed. According to Foster, eating a large meal can raise your body’s core temperature and make it more difficult for you to fall asleep. Who knew that scarfing down an entire pizza at midnight was bad for your beauty rest?

Next on our hitlist is exercise. That evening run might be making you look great in those skinny jeans, but it’s also raising your body temperature – making it harder for you to catch some zzzs at night.
Foster also suggests avoiding phone usage before bedtime due to its stimulating effect on certain areas of your brain – but don’t worry; we’re sure all those social media notifications aren’t stressing anyone out too much.
