The problem is that a number of people have serious difficulties falling asleep. Luckily, this is when the global online village comes to the rescue with plenty of their useful advice. Today it's 19 hints how to quickly travel to the land of Nod!

    #1 Bed is just for sleeping

    Treat your bed as a sleeping spot only. This is how once you lay your body on it, it will associate with sleeping only. That is why reading in bed at day is not an option at all.

    #2 Keep a diary

    Start running your own diary. Before falling asleep record all your bad emotions and negative feelings. Your head will be much lighter as a result.

    #3 Blend into the bed

    Just make yourself comfortable and imagine you are melting into the bed.

    #4 Impossible things

    Once you close your eyes imagine some impossible things or weird things that usually never happen. After some time one idea will switch into another and without even realizing it you will drop off.

    #5 A good mattress

    Make sure that the hardness of the mattress you buy will come up to your expectations.

    #6 Away from the phone

    Make sure that the phone and the charger are not in the bedroom. Not only will it tempt you to take a look before you fall asleep, but in the morning you will have to get up to switch the alarm off.

    #7 Physical activity

    Fatigue makes you want to sleep much more early. So when you take up a sport or even go for longer walks than usual, hitting the hay will not take you so long.

    #8 The fewer children, the better

    Experienced parents can explain that in detail.

    #9 Come back to your course books

    If you happen to have some school books that you didn't use very often though you were supposed to, perhaps once again they will prove so boring that you will nod off in a blink of an eye.

    #10 A shower and lavender

    An hour before going to sleep take a shower and smell some lavender oil. Go to bed, watch your body, slowly relax your muscles and concentrate on breathing slowly.

    #11 The power of routine

    Go to sleep and get up always at the same time. Our bodies love routines.

    #12 Arrange your imaginary house
