    Aromatherapy and meditation. Before getting ready for bed, I have a routine of at least 20 minutes of yoga, with only candle light, while playing a jazz and I even burn lavender oil or when I run out, use a lavender oil plug in. Once I finish my yoga, I sit and meditate for a while, focusing on quieting my thoughts. After this I am usually so relaxed that I am able to fall quickly to sleep. Hope that helps you sleep better!!

    Sleepytime tea. But honestly I can never sleep, so I try to get a nap during the day and a couple hours at night. Staying away from tv and computers before bed also helps.

    Honestly I have medication for that. That is a last resort. What works best as an alternative for me is;

    A session of 'mindfulness' to quiet myself and recognize myself

    I place with both hands my middle finger and thumb together. When I ran distance races and once a marathon I was coached when those two fingers are together we naturally relax. Works for me.

    I concentrate on my breathing. I inhale as deep as possible and exhale as slowly as possible. I find where discomfort begins for each and then back away a notch where comfort is. I do not count. I focus on the process.

    Then, I wake up and it is morning, later in the afternoon or evening, and at times the alarm clock went off.

    Reading a book that almost made the NY Times Worst Seller List. It is a textbook on Educational Psychology (3rd Edition) by E. H. Ettinger & J. V. Connor (2008). When I was involved in co-authoring it I spent many eves "burning the midnight oil."
    After it was published I could barely read a chapter before I was in deep under-cover delta-wave length sleep. All I have to do is pick up that text and begin to read on any page and before I have turned 10 pages I am "comatose."
    It is now out of print; thus, perhaps the greatest sleep medication of all time is now almost impossible to procure...
