5mg of melatonin (found in the supplement section) 30 minutes before bedtime works well. Many years ago when DS was younger he was not so good at the sleeping thing. his doctor recommended this for him, and I tried it for myself, too. It doesn’t knock you out or anything, but it does help smooth out your body’s natural sleep rhythm.

Black out drapes

White noise machine

Good pillow and mattress

All 3 are so amazing!! I can’t stand sleeping when there’s not black out drapes.

Yes, melatonin. Also, cut all caffiene after, say, 4PM and watch your nighttime intake of sugars and spicy foods.

Try not to eat too late at night, cut caffeine, and try Valerian root.  It is a natural herb that really really can help.  It is a natural muscle relaxer.

– Routine is the biggest one. Your body will get tired naturally if you stick to the same pattern. 

– Exercise before bed helps me a lot–I sleep much better on evenings I work out.

– A good pillow, good mattress, and a fan. Can’t sleep without them. We swear by memory foam. I have a memory foam pillow (Target) and mattress topper, and then a regular body pillow. I sleep on my side with the pillow between my knees and up under my chin.

– NO tv/phone/computer for an hour before sleep.

Here’s what I do. Exercise at 7:30 (30 Day Shred), shower at 8, followed by getting ready for bed (face stuff, lotion, brush teeth, blow dry hair, take out contacts, put on pjs, get a water and my book, lay out next day’s clothes, etc.), get in bed around 9, read for an hour, sleep at 10.
