1. Read Before Bed

"My suggestion would be to read a book or novel before going to bed. Try to avoid watching TV, [or looking at your] mobile, iPad, and anything with a digitally lit screen. Take a soothing bath — going from warm water into a cooler bedroom will cause your body temperature to drop, making you feel sleepy." — Jennifer, 28
