In brief: Use excellent sleep

hygiene. 1. Keep regular bed & wakening time (even weekends).
Get up same time daily. 2. Use regular, relaxing bedtime routine: warm bath / shower, aromatherapy, reading, or listening to gentle music. 3. Sleep in dark, quiet, cool room w comfy mattress & pillows. 4. Bedroom only for sleep & sex. Put work materials, computers, & TVs in another room. 5. Finish eating at least 2-3 hrs prior to bed.

6. No caffeine w/i 6 hours; alcohol & smoking w/i 2 hrs of bed. 7. Exercise regularly; finish a few hrs before bedtime.8. No naps. Retire only when tired. 9. Find another time to write down problems & solutions.10. After 10-15 mins of inability to sleep, go to another room & read or watch TV until sleepy. Consider acupuncture, chamomile tea, warm milk or melatonin.
