4.  Remove or decrease the amount of noise in your environment. Do you like to fall asleep with the television on? Beware that you may not be getting the kind of sleep you need in order to be well-rested. Experts say that soft music may be okay if it aids in sleep, but be wary of loud noises as this will decrease the quality of sleep.   

5.  Get rid of that old mattress. A bad mattress can lead to back aches which leads to a more restless sleep experience. Go to the store and test a few out. Do you need a firm mattress or a softer mattress? Its up to you to figure out which one is going to allow you to rest the easiest.

6.  Try to limit your stress level at bedtime. Is there something on your mind? Write it down so that you can address it in the morning and forget about it at night.
