    There are a lot of tips and tricks… Different things work for different people though.
    -Don`t have a cup of tea (or coffee!!) more than an hour before bed – the caffine will keep you awake.
    -Chamomile tea helps to calm you down though, so that might help.
    -Having a bath with lavender.
    -It could also help if you put a few drops of lavender on your pillow.
    -Deep breathing/general relaxing.
    Also, it`s supposed to be really bad to do anything other than sleep in your bed. Read a book on the couch, do work at a desk/table, eat at a bench, but not in bed. This is to do with the mind subconsciously associating the bed with activities, rather than sleep.
    Hope this helps! (and that you have no more sheep disasters!)

    you could try doing your work in your bed, that generally gets you sleepy. i do my math homework in bed and there i go, sleepng in no time! but then i usually have to wake up early to finish off my homework…yuck! reading a book you`ve already read also helps.

    so true B.O. there is nothing like a long hot bath with some candles and the door shut. i still can as bub goes to bed at 6pm & isn`t up until 6.30am but by the end of the day it is an effort to even run it. i am going to tonight though, and i`m using my salts.

    counting sheep generally help you go to sleep. hehe. taking a nice warm bath helps me relax and feel more sleepy. I love to soak in the bath for a long period of time however it`s more of a luxury these days and not something I can do too often with a little one.

    i can`t take valerian. it makes me have halucinogenic nightmares. it does that to some people. i use vetiver essential oil on the sole of my foot and lavender in the burner. chamomile, passion flower and lavender tea helps too.

    So all you pussy cats were up till late last night and I`m the only one here first thing in the morning. I have a great suggestion for you all – if you get up verrrrryyyyy early every morning you`ll sleep well at night. Works for me…. (I would have thought all those bubs would have woken you early anyway!)
