Alcohol can only interrupt your sleep later on so it is best to avoid it. Other things you need to stay away from are too much caffeine during the day, vigorous exercises a few minutes before sleeping, television or computer usage even while on the bed, very bright lights overhead, cigarette smoking, and irregular bedtime schedule among others.

Going to bed and waking up at precisely the same time every day is beneficial for your body to eventually adjust to your biological clock. Turning the lights off, keeping the room cool and silent, and using the bed solely for sleeping are also helpful in making sure that you are free from any disturbance and discomfort. If you do not feel sleepy yet and you find yourself restless, it is better to stay out of the bed first, do something relaxing, like reading a book, and return to bed only when you are already dozy. In addition, it is also advantageous to learn some relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, deep breathing, and the like, which you can practice when you are getting ready to sleep or when you unexpectedly awaken in the middle of your sleep. These practices can certainly facilitate in relieving stress and calming your mind and body.

 Apart from the routines that you can follow, dietary supplements and prescribed or over-the-counter medications can also provide relief to some extent. However, this is just temporary and should be only be your last resort. Even if some of them are labeled as being natural, they can still bring about adverse side-effects. It is recommended to consult a physician prior to taking any medication for insomnia diseases.
