Restful, Healthy Sleep Habits
Develop a Bedtime Routine
It may sound obvious, but developing a bedtime routine is one of the best things you can do for getting your body into a sleep habit. Have a wind down time before bed which involves no screens or anything that might stimulate your mind.

Having a relaxing bath or doing some gentle stretching are things that can help you wind down before you actually go to bed.

And finally, going to bed at the same time every night, as well as getting up at the same time every morning (even on weekends) can really help develop a healthy sleep pattern.
 
Keep the Bed just for Sleeping
If all you do in bed, is sleep, then your body will become accustomed to the message of when you get in bed, it is time for sleep. Reading or watching TV in bed can really hinder those who have difficulty sleeping.

If You Simply Cannot Sleep – Do Something Else
Lying through the night wide awake can actually become detrimental to health for those who stress themselves out about it. Insomnia can end up causing anxiety and depression, and so if at all possible it is best not to stress about not sleeping.

Get up and do some boring chores, or practice some deep relaxation, whatever works for you. But to keep the goal in mind for a restful healthy sleep routine, don't catch up on missed sleep in the day time.
