    Hello akuigla:

          I believe everyone is different in respect to getting a good night's rest. All of us have internal clocks within, that assist us in waking. Some however need the assistance of an alarm clock. However getting a good nights sleep naturally...I would have to say first of all do not eat or drink any heavy meals or snacks after the early evening hours. Do not do any strenuous exercise or drink products containing caffeine. This will definitely put your body in a to go mode. Possibly a little brandy and honey mixed within a nice warm cup of sleepy time, or chamomile type herbal teas would helps as well. Some people believe it or not need a little noise to help themselves sleep. I find that sleeping in a dark environment with a noise box, that simulates ocean sounds, or white noise helps me sleep much better. And of course going to sleep at a decent hour. There are others who I know that need the assistance of prescription med.s such as Klonopin, Ambien or Lunesta to help them get and stay to sleep.  I do not recommend this at all, since the later two drugs in particular can tend to be addicting after awhile. I hope that I answered your question somewhat?

    A good night’s sleep can be totally mental sometimes. I feel that it is more important to calm down the mind and if calm the body will follow. Meditation can seem silly but I find it can be greatly helpful in a good night’s sleep. Getting exercise a few hours before bed can go a long way as well. Sexual activity helps me immensely in getting to bed. More so due to the fact that if it’s on my mind I will have troubles sleeping without it. Definitely try to keep eating to meal times and not snack too much at night. There are the obvious ones such as avoiding caffeine at night, not having distractions in your room such as a TV or computer, or ensuring a quite location to sleep. A little background noise from a fan can make all the difference sometimes. It is a steady soothing sound (for some people) that also helps filter out background noise. From personal experience I can also say that one shouldn’t bring up negatives with a partner or try and resolve an issue before bed. It usually doesn’t end very well!

    There are a few things that lead to a great night's sleep.

    1- Wake up fairly early so you will be tired enough to go to sleep later.

    2- Eat well, so you have the right amount of energy to get you through the day. Sugar, caffeine, and simple carbs will only give you dramatic energy swings and crashes.

    3- Exercise. It is a known fact that getting in a pretty good workout can help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

    4- Spray a lavender mist on your pillow. Lavender is calming and helps you fall asleep, plus it smells really good smile

    I simply shut my mind off but if I can't I think about doing something fun. It usually helps me fall into a deep sleep and even dream.

    Reading before bed always seem to work. Reading a book or magazine that is on a positive story can help with good sleep. Reading negative topics like bad things happening in News Articles won't help.
