If your having trouble sleeping talk to your doctor. A little home trick my mother did was give me and my sisters a little glass of baby warm milk. That was when we were children, so I dont exzactly no if it worked but hey its worth a try?
Get up and do something. It works best if it is not in your room but that isn't always possible for people. Read a book, do a puzzle, write down stuff, draw, paint, pet your dog or cat, etc. Don't run around or watch tv, that will wake you up more. Then after how ever long, try to fall back asleep.
Have your room as dark and quiet as possible. Wear a sleep mask (or just cover your eyes with a folded cloth). If there is noise from the next room or the street, run a small fan (not necessarily blowing on you, but a slight breeze is soothing if not cold) so that the hum of the fan (called "white noise") will blur over other sounds. No caffeine, exercise, or tension (if possible to avoid) after 7:00 pm.
Turn a small fan on have it blowing towards you but not on you close your eyes listen to music on low volume and lay still with your eyes closed for 20 minutes it helps to make your body slow down and your heart rate to lower
its usually about resetting your body clock. * Go to bed at the same time each night. Have at least 7hrs sleep & wake up same time each morn. * Don't drink caffeinated drinks after sundown. Try to eat no later than 7pm. * Exercise in the morn, not near bedtime. * Hot shower before bed. Should work.
