Don't Drink Too Much

Your best friend's eggnog is so tasty, but it could also cost you a good night’s sleep. Drinking too close to bedtime, even in moderate amounts, can disrupt your sleep. Alcohol depresses your adrenalin and slows you down, which is great to help you fall asleep, but when your alcohol wears off, you can get a surge in adrenalin (a rebound of sorts) that wakes you. You can enjoy that eggnog; just switch to the non-alcoholic variety at least two hours before bedtime.
