A few tips, admittedly more geared towards getting to sleep in the first place rather than staying asleep, but maybe of some use.
.. get everything ready for bed.. sheets turned back, hot chocolate made, all jobs done, PJ's at the ready etc. Have a quick, hot bath, then
immediately go to bed.
..trying to stay awake is often a way to get to sleep. try watching a late night movie, in bed, lying down.
..Sleep with your windows and curtains wide open. Fresh air really helps and the natural light or dark can sometimes help to align your body clock
properly. (Watch out for alien abductions though
..sex. rollover. fart. sleep. Works for us blokes anyway!
.. go on a camping trip. Usually great for sleep, and and a week of sleeping under the stars should have you body clock working properly. Again it's
the fresh air and natural light that helps.
.. experiment with food combining i.e. avoiding bad combinations such as meat+carbs in the same meal. meals should generally consists of meat and veg
OR carbs and veg. You'll have much more energy in the day, and that should help contribute to better rest at night. (you'll also lose inches off
your waist as your gut shrinks, since you'll digest food far quicker and you won't have as much being processed inside you at any given time.)
