Caffeine

Do: Drink chamomile tea. Chamomile has a mild sedative property, which increases when combined with the soothing effect of a warm liquid.

Don’t: Consume anything containing caffeine (including coffee, caffeinated tea and chocolate) less than four hours before bedtime. In addition to being a stimulant, caffeine, like alcohol, is also a potent diuretic that could cause you to wake up to go to the bathroom.
