Turn down the lights. It's more difficult to fall and stay asleep in a room that is too bright. Wear a sleeping mask and close the blinds and curtains to diminish light and set the mood for sleep.

*******************************

What are your lighting conditions?

Let it out. Try to decrease your brain activity before bed by writing down your thoughts in a journal. It will help clear your mind so you can close the book on today and move forward.

**************************​**

So ... do you journal? Blog?

Turn your back on the clock. Studies show that watching the clock into the morning hours makes you more anxious and less able to fall asleep. Move the clock so you can't see it from bed.

****************************

I did this months ago and it really does help. Where is your clock?

Have a light snack. Eating a heavy meal too close to bedtime can interfere with sleep. To ensure you get plenty of shut-eye, try a light snack before bed, but avoid protein-rich and caffeine-containing food and beverages.

*****************************

Time to rethink that midnight snack! Do you have a favorite treat before bedtime?

Think positive. A pessimistic outlook can significantly increase your risk of insomnia. People who focus on the positive tend to sleep better and experience better health in general.

Keep a sleep schedule. Go to bed and wake up at the same times every day - including weekends. You'll fall asleep faster and have more energy each day.

*****************************

What is your schedule right now?

Exercise regularly. Following a consistent exercise program can help you increase your energy levels during the day, improve your mood and regulate your sleeping patterns at night.

I'm a facebook addict myself ;) When I had my son 2 years ago, I was put on bedrest at about 22 weeks, so I started playing all the farms and stupid games. I've had to ween myself off - wow are they crazy addictive!!! I only play farmville now, and gardens of time .... which I totally justify because it isn't a time sensitive game ;)

We bowl on a Monday night league. Unfortunately I bowled horrible and it was not relaxing. Playing on facebook tends to help me chill out.

Relieve stress! People with uncontrolled stress are more prone to insomnia. But exercise, meditation, yoga, and other techniques can help you relax. Do something to relieve that stress each day.
