No light please in the bedroom
You need to regulate the lightning of your bedroom, make sure that there is no direct light source coming to your face when you are in the bedroom. It really prevents a good sleep if your room is filled with light or there are multiple sources like street lamps, power indicators, mosquito repellents etc through which some or the other kind of light is filled in the room. You need to get rid of this light. Have a bed switch or lamp which you can easily power on if required. Normally for people with kids it becomes important to have some light to have an eye on their toddlers and their movements. But remember a dark room also helps your kids to get a deep sleep.
Control your hunger at dinner
Experts recommend dinner at least 90 minutes before going to sleep, a meal that does not cause indigestion. Always try to go for a light dinner, you should also eat less but no so less that you start feeling hungry in the midnight. Clearly miss sweet items which may increase the body glucose which can cause restlessness during your sleep. Moreover it is also recommended to avoid exciting drinks such as colas, coffee and tea before going to bed. People suggest for warm milk but that too must be taken earlier, not at the time of going to bed.
No noisy room or lot of equipments
Your room should not be filled with lot of household goods and TV and music players etc. Even avoid keeping electronic items in your bedroom. They all can cause diversion and be hurdles in your sleep regime. Your bedroom should is the only a place to sleep. Nothing else.
Letting go of the tensions of the day
If there is something you really care, or several things you have done and you keep on thinking about them can lead to not getting a better sleep. To avoid this just grab a paper and a pen and start pointing things that are pending or things you care about and want to solve, and finally write it down for tomorrows to do list.
This helps you in subconsciously relax more easily for the time being and temporarily get away from things that worry you and not letting you sleep properly.
Avoid being concentrated at bedtime

I know sometimes it seems that we may have failed to complete some work which was ultra urgent and we try to finish it in night before going to bed, but the problem is that when you start doing this, you get into this habit of working in the night, try to be more organized so that you can finish your work on time and can relax before going to bed. This will surely help you in getting the right kind of sleep required for your body to relax.
A nice relaxing bath
Something a bath helps you getting relaxed and get out of that whole day’s tiredness before going to bed.
