Last night, I sat with my big glass of milk and watched the Billboard Latino Awards. I saddled up for an amazing show full of incredible performances and crossing my fingers that my favorites walked home with an award. I got so overwhelmed with emotion watching the Jenni Rivera tribute and so excited when Prince Royce, who I mentioned I was hoping would win, won several awards including Artist of the Year! YAY!!
Also exciting to see veterans like Marc Anthony take the stage and perform a new, soon to be hit song “Vivir Mi Vida.” It was for sure an exciting night. The stars all dazzled and their smiles looked healthy and bright (probably from all that leche they drank verdad?). However, even in all my dancing around and jumping in excitement, I need to start to relax. So I warmed up the rest of my milk, cuddled up with my husband and fell into a deep, well rested sleep.
Hopefully the artists had the same idea because they need to be well rested to start aiming for next year’s awards. Great dreams may have start with a great night’s sleep and a delicious glass of milk just before going to bed; as it may help you have a better night’s sleep. Milk contains the protein alpha-lactalbumin, rich in tryptophan, that tells the brain to sleep,” says Dr. Milton Erman, President of Pacific Sleep Medicine Services and a member of Scripps Clinic Medical Group in La Jolla. “Plus, you wake up feeling rested the next morning which is exactly what all the performers need!
