A major fallout of the new and restricted lifestyle we were suddenly forced into by the coronavirus pandemic has been on our health and fitness. Stress and anxiety have affected our sleeping pattern.

Nutritionist Lovneet Batra has shared a few food tips that can help us regularise our sleeping patterns.

Getting a night of good sleep is a mandatory part of life. But insomnia or sleeplessness has become a common disorder affecting a large population and impairing general health and mental wellbeing.
If you too are struggling to get a comfortable sleep, try the following three food tips by Lovneet Batra that may help you slowly soothe your body.
A medicinal herb, Ashwagandha's main active ingredients are withanolides, which are believed to carry a host of benefits including the ability to ease stress. Plus, it naturally contains triethylene glycol that may bring on sleepiness. You can have it 30 minutes before bedtime for a good night's sleep.
Nuts like almonds are considered a natural stimulator for sleep. Almonds contain melatonin as well as essential minerals like magnesium and zinc — a combination that improves sleep efficiency and could assist sleep.
3) Chamomile tea
It is a popular herbal tea that may offer a variety of health benefits, including reducing anxiety. It's also used to calm an upset stomach and other digestive issues. Specifically, Chamomile tea is widely regarded as a mild tranquiliser and sleep-inducer. The sedative effects may be due to the flavonoid, apigenin, that binds to benzodiazepine receptors in the brain.
