A healthy lifestyle leads to a healthy body, including your habits at night before you sleep.

Below are habits you may want to adopt at night if you're thinking about losing weight, courtesy of kompas.com:

1. Drink a glass of milk
Drinking a glass of milk before you sleep is actually beneficial not only in helping you sleep better but also suppressing your midnight appetite.

Rich with a type of protein named casein; milk helps fulfill your need for amino acids throughout the night, which will boost weight loss in a healthy way.

2. An after-dinner stroll
It does feel comfy to relax on the sofa after dinner. Unfortunately, this habit is bad news for our stomach as it makes the body inactive and can lead to weight gain.

Hence, always try to take a stroll after dinner.

3. Sleep on time
Going to bed past midnight may lead to an increase in body weight, which can also hinder digestion.

Lack of sleep makes your fat cells less responsive to insulin, which can cause weight gain.

This habit can also trigger a bigger appetite the next day, hence you may find that many people tend to eat anything after sleeping so little the previous night.

4. Yoga before sleep
There are many yoga postures that can help your body relax and efficiently lower your body weight, such as the easy forward bend and standing forward bend poses.

Heavy exercising before bed is a bad idea because it gives your brain and body tons of energy right when you’re trying to wind down. Doing some yoga or some stretching, however, can help you relax.
While you’re doing this, you should pay close attention to your breathing. Doing deep, diaphragmatic breathing activates your “rest and digest” parasympathetic nervous system. This reduces stress and helps you to quickly fall asleep.

Your body temperature should drop 0.5° for you to fall asleep. Sleeping naked helps heat from your core dissipate quickly from your skin, allowing you to sleep sooner. It helps calorie-burning by boosting brown fat levels, improves metabolism, prevents foul body odor, and improves sperm quality. But don't go bare if you have with sensitive skin, declining muscle mass , or low basal metabolic rate. [2]
