Keep a Sleep Journal
Couple asleep in bed

Try different sleep remedies for a week or two to see what works best.


There is no one formula for perfect sleep -- different things work for different people. The important thing is to give everything a fair and persistent trial (for at least a week or two, not just one night) and see what works best for you. Keep a sleep log, a notebook of what works and what doesn't.

There's no magic trick to treating insomnia, but some of the home remedies outlined here might just be the recipe you need to get back to sleep.
