Yeah loads of them. But what I find really works well is establish a bedtime routine. I drink a cut of chamomile tea and do something boring. If t.v. is boring to you do that,or read something that is hard to read. Do calming deep breaths--while doing this use a method that relaxes your tongue. While laying down in bed in a comfortable position. Relax your shoulders, let your tongue float in your mouth, not letting it touch the top of your mouth or your teeth. Try to concentrate on this, it relaxes your mouth, jaw, head, neck and shoulders. Concentrating on the breathing. Slow and steady.
Another thing is to make your room as condsive to sleep as possible. Darken the windows, make it quiet if you like a passive or white noise use a fan. I noticed that I sleep better at the beach where I hear the waves. I also use ear plugs--my husband snores and sometimes it wakes me up. Half way through the night I take them out.Good luck
