    Definitely put away your iPhone/touch/pad/tablet and any other convenient eletronic device you can easily hold under a blanket in the dark, like I am right now.

    well, hang on a minute. what if it's only some prominent status quo that dictates that we wake and sleep in 24 hr cycles. by practiced nature, this is prolly the best of all methods. but, perhaps, there were tribes whom waked and slep in cycles more than or less than 24 hours and we never knew and will never know it happened because it got lost in history. and they found it better to roll over into the next day. heck, you could be normal and the rest are doing it wrong. you just believe it's not right through established standard. i wouldn't worry to much about it

    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Yep I was going to say that. And also make sure you are well-hydrated. I get these weird feverish half-awake dreams if I'm dehydrated at night.

    Other stuff people have been saying, about exercise, no naps, that's good advice too.

    Turn on an episode of M.A.S.H.

    That intro song should knock you out right away.

    Apparently though, some people like this show. I have no idea what it's about myself. I keep falling asleep.

    Enjoy your time awake and read or knit or forum or something.

    No caffeine after about 4pm. Exercise but not within a couple hours of bed. Hydrate. Smaller dinner and not after 6pm or so if you can help it. Make a habit of not doing non sleep/sex related activities in bed. Train your mind to consider going to bed as part of the habit of drifting off to sleep. It is a bed, not a library or a phone booth.

    I agree. I love a good cup of coffee right before bed. But many people are very sensitive to caffeine and it can last in excess of 5 hours. Most good advice is painful.

    Get on a decent sleep schedule. Melatonin.

    Some good suggestions in this thread. This is the biggest factor for me:

    For me it's more like after ~1pm. Seriously!
