Works like a charm!

Routine routine routine.

1 hour before bed:
Turn off the TV, radio, computer, and anything else that is noisy and bright. Pick up a book or magazine. Study every page, even the ads.

1/2 hour before bed:
Wash your face, brush your hair and teeth.

15 minutes before bed:
Walk around the house and check every _ Slowly. Walk around and check the doors. Turn out every light. Set out clothes for the next day.

In bed:
Lie on your back and close your eyes. Stretch every muscle in your body (first tense, then loose and relaxed). Think of a pleasant event that happened today.

DO NOT:
Do work before bed.
Recap the entire day.
Plan for tomorrow (that's what calendars are for)
Drink caffeine or eat sugar (I doubt you do, though)
Watch TV or read in bed. Bed is for SLEEP ONLY.

I hope I helped!

This really sounds like a good routine. Makes me sleepy just thinking about it. I will definitely have to try this one.

NyQuill.
Align you bed so that the head/foot is East/West.

Yeah, I have to agree with TC, NyQuil will turn your lights out. It'll take you to the edge of sleep and beyond.


What's with the east/west thing? Right now I'm sleeping north/northwest south/southeast.

Peace

OP said he was a fitness buff.. so doubt exercise is/should be on his list. Besides the best time to work out is in the morning after a good nights sleep.

Anyways.. think of something pleasant or think of a blank pc of paper. What I ussually do is listen to the radio. Put on my fav. channel and have it tuned down to a whisper. This always puts me to sleep. Put something soothing on.. Not something that will get you hyper or active.
