Comfort food?: There are chemicals in your brain which respond to food, smell, habit and touch. Rituals can calm you and prepare you for sleep. Milk enhances sleep through the tryptophan pathways, and can be helpful for many people. If you take your Ibuprofen at night, milk is helpful to protect your stomach from irritation. Best wishes for good sleep.
