When I wrote Relax In A Minute, the chapter people asked about more than any other was the one on sleep. I was surprised at just how many people struggle with dropping off and sleeping deeply.
So is it possible that eating fruit before bed could possibly help?
Yes. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the mighty kiwifruit.
A study in Taipei found the levels of antioxidants and serotonin in kiwis helped subjects to drop off 35% quicker. It also found a significant improvement in total sleep time as well as a big reduction in waking time after sleep onset.
Worth trying a few of those hairy little green beauties eh?
But be warned, researchers are very specific - they say you need to eat two kiwifruit exactly one hour before bed.
If you struggle with sleep, try a few different things - there are lots of ideas and techniques that can make a positive difference. Here's a sleep technique of mine which might help.
And stock up on kiwifruit...
