    Usually I have good sleep when I go to bed. But, there are some times when sleep doesn't come, I start reading books lying on bed. This always works for me. Within a matter of 20-30 minutes I fall asleep. Another thing I do.... I avoid sleeping at day time. I only sleep at night. So I always get good sleep at night.

    When I am busy throughout the day, I do not have any problem getting sound sleep. It is only if I am idle, I may not feel sleepy as well. But I do wash my face, hands and feet before going to bed everyday. Another thing is to eat your dinner, a light one,  at least two hours before going to sleep. Reading really helps before going to bed.  And do not forget to say a short, silent prayer to God, thanking him for yet another good day in your life.

    In a perfect world? I would smoke marijuana before going to sleep. I suffer horrible insomnia and I am not a fan of sleeping pills. A nice relaxing bath and a little marijuana equals great sleep. Unfortunatly that is not a current option so instead I lay awake until my brain is done thinking!

    For a good night sleep, make sure not to drink caffiene after say 7 pm, if you want sleep by 11, may need to quit before that. Warm milk contains trytophan, which is the calming nutrient, that produces serotonin. The neurotransmiter responsible for for a state of calm, and by which melatonin is derived. It is a natural biological process the body produces for sleep. Melatonin, is produced in the peneal gland, from trytophan, as night falls more melatonin is produced. So sit quietly, in a dim room, before bedtime. A well lit room will be counter productive, as well as looking at a bright computer screen, before bedtime. Teenagers, and older adults are usually lacking in melatonin. For teenagers it is over productive hormones, whereas adults, we produce less and less as we age.There are many helpful supplements, for this ailment. Magnesium helps to relax the body. Melatonin, for the missing hormone, or trytophan, to produce melatonin, directly. Not habit forming, like sleeping pills. See my article on menopause for dosage amounts.

    I try to be fairly active during the day and make sure not to sleep too much at night.

    If I find I can't sleep due to anxiety over the day or worries about the next day I write everything out on a piece of paper, turning the light on and adding more if I have to. This gets the anxieties and to-do lists out of my head so I don't have to try to remember them for the morning.
