Monitor your caffeine intake- after your morning cup of joe, try avoiding it for the rest of the day, especially late in the afternoon. High levels of caffeine in your blood stream can take hours to fully leave your body, so the later you drink any drink with caffeine in it, the higher chance it will still be stimulating your system when going to bed.
Get a work out in- healthy living and sleeping well is promoted when you are working out for at least 45 minutes a day 3-4 days a week. When you work out, your body produces endorphins in your brain (which are hormones produced in your body) that make you feel relaxed and promote a sense of well being. These hormones are also proven to help you sleep longer and efficiently, because of the increased relaxation.
