Eat Some Food

Some foods can help your brain relax and secrete the hormones and neurotransmitters responsible for making you get to sleep, a good example would be the secretion of Serotonin, this neurotransmitter is responsible for mood regulation,sleeping and others.

Eat Foods that contain carbohydrates, such foods are: Rice, beef, tuna,bread, spaghetti and others.

Drinking milk can also help you big time to sleep, you know when babies drink milk they rapidly fall asleep after drinking it, yes?

Putting Relaxing And Calm Music

Many people can't sleep if they don't have their calm music on although some people don't like to hear anything at all while attending to sleep but it's known that calm music can really help almost anyone to fall asleep because it can relax the mind and relieve it from the many thoughts that most people get to have especially before bedtime.

Talk Or Chat With A friend

Sometimes the mind won't be relaxed until it gets all its thoughts out of it so a lot of people prefer to chat or talk to someone before bedtime to empty all of what's in their heads and you too can try that, well unless you don't prefer doing as such.

There are many other methods that would also work, it just depends on you sometimes.

      A quick bath makes me feel more comfortable and thus gets me to sleep faster. Listening to music does not really work for. I usually find myself singing or humming with what I am listening to. :)
