Other things that will help is no coffee or tea in the evening, or if you must, have  decaf instead.

Buy two bottles from aromatherapy product supplier, Chamomile and Lavender. You can either burn them in an oilburner with water before bed, you can sprinkle few drops on pillowcase or tissue, works a treat!

For those who believe in chrystal vibrations you can pop an amethyst under your pillow, that too will help.
