– Drink a glass of warm milk at night time

– Take a warm water bath duing evening hours, after you return from office.

– Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, drink juices, get your nutrition status to otimum levels.

– mild to medium excercise during evening period,, so that you feel tired, followed by a hot shower and then a warm cup of milk will defeinitely send you straight to bed.

– If you are sensitive to even a little bit of noise, use ear plugs.

– If you are sensitive to light, then switch it off or use a cloth band to cover your eyes, loosely. Now it has been proved that sleeping in a dark room may prevent depression.
