3. Develop a night time regimen.
Having a routine that helps you prepare for bed may be your biggest weapon to fight tossing and turning. Two hours before bed, begin to power down; turn your blackberry off, turn the TV volume down, dim the lights and lower the thermostat.
If you ready your body for bed by creating an environment conducive to sleep, you will ease into sleep rather than struggling to catch some Z’s. Use your favorite vanilla lotion, take a hot bath or light some candles, and aim to fall asleep at the same time every night.
Once you establish a routine, your body will adjust to this new regimen and you’ll sleep like a baby.
