If this is the case, the first thing to do is take a look at the wattage of bulbs in your bedrooms lights. If the number is high, try picking out a bulb with a lower watt, like a 40 or 60 watt bulb, you are aiming for ambient lighting, and preferably something that is not shining like a spotlight directly on your bed. We recommends installing a dimmer switch so you can slowly lower the electrical lights as it gets closer to bedtime.
It is difficult to overstate how important proper lighting is when it comes to feeling drowsy. Since we are conditioned to become sleepy when it starts to get dark, our brains can become confused when there is too much light at a time when it is supposed to be dim. This can lead to a lot of tossing and turning when you would really rather be drifting off into dreamland.
