The Reason Why You Shouldn't Drink Water Before Bed Might Surprise You

When it comes to bedtime, everyone has their own routine. Whether it’s watching tv, listening to music, eating a small snack, reading, etc. Most people drink a lot of water before going to sleep, or keep a bottle/cup of water on their nightstand to quench a nighttime thirst. While many people say you should drink water before bedtime, there are many who say you shouldn’t. There is one main reason as to why you shouldn’t drink water before dozing off for the night.

Drinking water before bedtime can disrupt a good night’s sleep, and we all know sleep is extremely important. Depending on the person, drinking water before going to sleep can lead to waking up during the middle of the night to use the bathroom at least once. If you keep waking up in the middle then how will you ever get a good night’s sleep? If you have a small bladder, stop drinking water a couple hours before bedtime so you have enough time to empty your bladder before falling asleep.

I know it sounds silly but if you wake up in the middle of the night, every night, then you won’t be getting the amount of sleep you require. Deprivation of sleep can lead to so many problems so this little fix is definitely worth it.
