The ones that I've heard are no TV or computer screens before bed, make sure you get exercise during the day and using a sound machine to help you fall asleep, like the sleepsheep.

I know you said no pills, but the doctor suggested melatonin for DD. I take it from time-to-time and it really relaxes you. It stays in your system for about 90 minutes so you can fall asleep and it's natural - what your body makes to make you feel tired. The doctor also suggested staying away from close screen work for 90 minutes before bed. Also, to wind down before bed rather than to be physically and mentally active - again for 90 minutes. She did say TV was OK but the news and other stimulating stories are best avoided.
