#8 – Get Enough Sleep
Sound sleep of 6 to 8 hours a day helps in reducing blood sugar levels and even controlling hypertension. A good-night’s sleep usually proves elusive when the stomach is completely full or completely empty. If your stomach is too full at the time you go to bed, you are likely to suffer from heartburn as you lie. On the other hand, an empty belly may rumble continuously throughout the night and prevent deep sleep.
So it is best to go to sleep with an almost empty (or half full) stomach that will make you feel light at night without feeling hungry. If this does not help, you should consult your doctor, who may prescribe a mild sedative to help you get a deep, restorative sleep on a daily basis.
