    I  believe in aroma therapy.  I smell once in a while oil with a good fragrance of any flower that smell good. Such as, lavander smell good.  I listen to soft music and leave the light on because I am afraid of reptiles.  The light gives me confort.  I drink a nice cup of any tea. Sometimes, I do not need any of this  relaxing techniques because I am tire of work.

      Wait until others in the house have retired. Shake up two slightly dry Stolis martinis and visit these topical forums!

      Watching an informational movie at an astronomical observatory this past weekend, they said there are increasing incidents of human problems because we use too much light.  There is no more dark in major portions of the US; many cannot see but a handful of stars there is so much light everywhere. 

      Something to think about; we are most definitely evolved in a light/dark environment and our bodies may well need the dark as much as they need the light.

      Don't look at your computer screen for a while before bed. It feels like it helps me fall asleep quicker. Reading a book with some camomile tea is always a nice ritual before bed as well.

    I turn off my computer and other devices an hour before bed. I take a shower, put on some music, stretch, have a cup of tea, and read a magazine. I am also a fan of aromatherapy.
