There are lifestyle habits or routines that you engage in that may affect your health. Unknown to you, some of these habits are usually due to your evening or night time activities. These activities if you don’t nip it in the bud can make you add weight. So, if you don’t want to gain weight, here are some nighttime habits you need to embrace.
Brush your teeth after dinner
If you have a knack for eating your dinner late in the night, you should always brush your teeth as it will prevent post-dinner snacking. Most times, when you brush your teeth, you are likely not to munch or eat anything after that.
Don’t eat in front of the television
If you consistently eat dinner in front of the TV, you concentrate on the TV rather than your food. This can lead to weight gain. So, not being mindful of the meal you’re eating can lead to eating more; and paying attention to a meal can lead to eating less.
Get enough sleep
Sleep deprivation has more consequences. It can lead to serious health issues such as high blood pressure and heart disease. You can add weight gain to it. Jumia Travel encourages you to try to sleep more at night.
Don’t make dinner your largest meal of the day
Many Nigerians do this because they want to combine the breakfast and lunch they missed in a dinner. This is not very good for your body. This is because these night meals can build calories in your body which may be difficult to burn. So, if you are lodging in one of the best hotels in Lagos, don’t be tempted to order large meals.
Don’t use drug in the night
Certain medications taken before bedtime can lead to weight gain. This includes some antipsychotics, antidepressants, and stimulants, which can lead to increased appetite. You should avoid these pills if you use at night. So, don’t take any medications without doctor’s advice.
