Follow your nose.
Some fragrances may affect mood and promote health.
Lavendar and chamomile scents can be soothing and relaxing. Try scented candles, body wash, or room spray before bedtime.

Check the thermostat.
Extremes in temperatures (too hot or too cold) can make it hard to fall asleep.
Most people sleep best at a temperature between 60 and 70 degrees farenheit. (around 15 - 22 celcius)

Another natural approach is Exhaustion... make your days so hectic that you will be asleep before your head hits the pillow.

Take a natural approach.
The most effective supplemental sleep aids are valerian and melatonin.
Always discuss dosage, risk and effectiveness with your doctor first.

Try tryptophan.
Consuming dairy products before bed can be helpful to some people, since milk contains the sleep-inducing amino acid, tryptophan.
Enjoy it cold or warm.

Nap wisely.
Naps can boost mood and productivity, but keep them under 20 minutes. Exceeding that time could leave you feeling groggier and make it harder for you to fall asleep at bedtime.

Be productive.
If thinking keeps you up at night, get out of bed and deal with those thoughts in a positive way --
Pay that bill or make a to-do list, for example.
Go back to bed when you are ready to sleep.

Listen to lullabies.
People who listen to soft music at bedtime can increase their sleep quality and quantity, according to recent studies.
Try folk, classical or relaxation music tonight.

Add white noise.
Most people can't fall asleep when it's too loud.
Wear ear plugs to drown out disturbing sounds and turn on "white noise" (like a fan or rain cd), so that you can sleep more soundly.

Relax a little.
Schedule some downtime each day for meditative activities like stretching,reading or enjoying a hot bath. This can help you unwind after and intense, stressful day so you'll sleep more soundly.

Limit caffeine. It keeps you awake day and night.
Aim for less than 1-2 cups of caffeineted beverages during the day, and avoid them at least four hours before bed for optimal sleep.

Very funny. Although I use the opposite. I have a very small alarm that only wakes me up and doesnt disturb my partner,

Next Tip.

Get a check up.
If you toss and turn MOST nights, you could be suffering from a sleep disorder.
Visit your physician..... the sooner you can find out what's wrong, the sooner you can fit it.

Very true....

Tip: turn the alarm up so loud that it gives you such a scare... that you won't possibly be able to go back to sleep because your heart is pounding. (not recomended if you have a heart condition)

Don't oversleep. Hitting the snooze button each day and sleeping in on the weekends can actually make you MORE tired.
Aim for a healthy 7-8 hours each night.

And I would like to add

Send the kids for a sleep over at Nana's .... that will mean no sleeping with one eye/ear open. Guaranteed for a good nights rest. lol

Thought I would share some handy hints with everyone. These come from the sparkpeople motivational calendars so feel free to download your own if you want to see the whole month at once.

Eat at regular intervals. This keeps your energy and blood sugar levels stable all day long. With fewer highs and lows, you'll be alert all day and ready to sleep at night.
