Cool Rooms Make Better Sleep
One thing that very few people seem to take into account, is that the temperature of the room can greatly influence how comfortable you are when you are about to fall asleep. A warm room is likely to keep you awake and prevent you from getting comfortable enough to finally slip into sleepy land. If you experiment with your room temperature, you’re likely to find a suitable temperature that works for you and gets you sent off slumber.

Get Some Exercise
Exerting yourself can go a long way to putting yourself to bed. Sometimes excess energy from the day has a way of keeping you awake. The best way to solve that is by making sure you don’t have any extra energy to worry about. Try doing short bursts of very vigorous exercise, or move your body throughout the day and you’re likely to end up closing your eyes a lot faster than if you hadn’t.

Choose the Right Pillow
Another thing that escapes a lot of people is the simple trick of changing how you sleep and being sure that your bedding is arranged in a way that allows you to get proper rest. Many people use their pillow in a way that is much too high to allow them to properly lie down and get a good night’s rest. Small tweak can make all the difference in your rest habits.

Practice Gratitude
Consider creating a bedtime ritual like writing in a gratitude journal. Sometimes at the end of day your mind may be filled with a lot of chaos or worry which can prevent you from falling asleep and staying asleep. Writing down a few things you are grateful for can reframe your mindset and help you have a peaceful nights sleep.

Breath Work and Meditation
It’s helpful to calm the nervous system before bedtime with simple breathing exercises or a meditation. The 4-7-8 breath has been know to help with sleep and anxiety and it’s fairly simple. Breathe in through your nose to the count of 4, hold your breath for the count of 7 and breath out through your mouth for the count of 8. Repeat up to 4 times.
