Are sleepless nights tormenting you? Not to worry, here are some tips that can get you sound sleep.

- Keep your bed clean and tidy. Use it only for sleeping purpose. According to researches we should not use our bed for watching television and using computers. By doing so, we tell the brain that it is time to sleep whenever we go to bed.
