1.Go to bed and wake up the same time everyday, including weekends. Establish a routine to help your biological clock. Changing the time you wake up each day can alter sleep cycles and disrupt other physiological systems.

2. Never have alcohol or caffeine just before going to bed. Alcohol might help you get to sleep more quickly but it will interfere with your sleep cycle and cause you to wake up early the next day.

3. Regular exercise will help your sleep cycles but do not do it immediately, before going to bed.

4. Use your bed only for sleeping and sex. Do not spend time in your bed reading, eating or watching television. You want your mind to associate your bed with sleep.

5. Relax. Don't worry about the future. Have a warm bath or listen to soothing music.

6. If you have a trouble sleeping, get up and do something else. Don't force yourself to lie there trying to get to sleep. Remember that one sleepless night won't affect your perfomance very and worrying about how you will be affected by not sleeping only makes it more difficult to sleep.
