5 Bedtime Snacks That'll Help You Sleep Better

If you're constantly groggy but struggling to get the sleep you need, your biological clock could be out of whack. Thankfully, getting your snooze cycle back in sync might be as simple as picking a new bedtime snack, according to a new study published in the journal Cell Reports. Researchers from Japan's Yamaguchi University found that eating a carbohydrate-rich snack in the evening may help reset your circadian clock. Why carbs? In the study, researchers found that insulin influences the crucial sleep-regulating gene PER2 in mice; this led them to conclude that ingredients that promote insulin secretion might also help promote healthy circadian patterns in humans. And since carbs in particular increase insulin secretion, they should also help to regularize your body's PER2 cycles so you're drowsy when you should be.

8 Things to Know about L.A.'s Koreatown

"Have you been to Koreatown yet?" my friend asked eagerly over the phone. It was my third week as a resident of Los Angeles, and I could no longer claim the pure shock of moving to a city so sprawling, so overwhelming, as the reason I had yet to explore its most interesting neighborhoods. But I had to answer "no." In a city as vast as Los Angeles, Koreatown seemed especially impenetrable, a huge warren of restaurants, markets, strip malls and residences. As much as I knew that it held a treasure trove of food, culture and nightlife, I was intimidated to even get started. Now, almost a year later, Koreatown is one of my favorite things about living in Los Angeles. It's like having an entire other city within a city, a gloriously foreign one at that. There are places in Koreatown where you look around and swear you are in Asia. And yet, it's also 100% Los Angeles: a strange, sprawling melting pot full of hidden delights.
