Some people who have difficulties in sleepisn automatically turn to sleeping pills. But before even thanking about them, it's a good idea to try and prepare yourself for sleep. Here's some advice. Before going to sleep, don't discuss exciting problems, quarrel with your family or watch a murder mystery on TV. Slep can be completely destroyed by too much excitement or worry. Also exercise before sleep is not a good idea. You can open the door to let out your dog,but don't take him for a long walk. The old advice to read in bed before sleep has now changed into a new one: be careful what you read before sllep. An interesting detective story can keep you awake till the morning comes. It's better to count sheep, or listen to the news on the radio - many people find it more effective than any sleeping pill!
