In brief: Get ready for sleep

A couple of easy tricks that may work if you've tried the usual "home remedies".
Don't use any technology that emits led light (including computer, cell phone, tablet, etc -as these can drop your natural melatonin levels because your body thinks it is daylight - for 2 hours before bed. Also, body temp drops before sleep, so put feet in warm water and then allow to cool in air to drop temp.
