What should I do right before sleeping? Watch tv, play on ipad, plan for the next day, talk to family or friends?

In brief: Sleep hygiene tips

Its best to go to bed at about the same time each night.
Do not watch tv or check the ipad, etc. As these things can make your mind race. Eat 3-4 hrs prior to bed, otherwise acid reflux may be a problem. Do not exercise prior to bedtime. Try to set a pattern. Go to bed in a quiet, dark, comfortable temperature room.

I recommend keeping your room cool as you can cover up if cool, but if it is hot you have little options.
