Too heavy food makes not sleeping worse, social interactions in bigger groups and traveling makes mental unrest and sleeplessness more.
A very small amount of coffee or tea I take in the morning lifts morning-depression. Being at home in a quiet atmosphere without visitors feels the best. Sometimes a quiet outing with a few nice friends is also uplifting.
