If you’re struggling to sleep well at every night, follow these top tips to help you put down that glass of warm milk and ditch the sheep counting. 

Adjust your evening meal
Stay away from big meals in the evening. Don’t eat heavy, rich food 2 hours before bed and fatty foods take a lot of work for your stomach to digest, which will keep you up.Alcohol in the evening will reduce your sleep quality and whilst you might think it will help you to fall asleep, it will probably wake you up in the middle of the night.

Set a regular bedtime
Go to bed at the same time every day. Simple. Like children, we need routines to tell our bodies when it’s time to shut down.Choose a time when you normally feel tired so you don’t toss and turn. 
If you need to change the time, do it slowly over a few nights with 15 minute increments.

Don’t fall asleep on the couch
A decision to nap is different to just dozing all the time.If you find yourself falling asleep in front of the telly, or worse, at your desk - get up and do something else to wake yourself up. Make a phone call, go for a walk, do that pile of washing – whatever it is, try to stick to your sleep timetable.

Wake up at the same time
Likewise with bedtime, you need a regular time to get out of bed sleepyhead. Try and maintain this even at weekends. If you are getting enough sleep, you should wake naturally without the help of an alarm clock. Adjust your bedtime accordingly.

Expose yourself to more light during the day 
Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone to help you regulate your sleep pattern. It is controlled by light exposure and your brain should secrete more during the evening to help you nod off.Help your brain out by getting outside, without sunglasses, in your lunch break or walk into work in the morning. At night, keep it dark by turning off your TV or computer while you try and go to sleep.

Make your bedroom a sanctuary
A comfortable bedroom means a cosy night’s sleep. Keep the rool cool, make sure your bed is roomy with nice clean sheets and keep the noise to a minimum.Your bed should be for sleep and sex only. If you associate it with anything else like working, your body will not get the message that it’s time to switch off.

No shame in a nap
If you have a late night, top up your sleep bank by squeezing in a power nap in the day as opposed to having a lie in.The ideal time to nap is early afternoon and for no more than 30 minutes.

Four things you probably never know, Your Mobile Phone could do.
There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival.

Check out the things that you can do with it:

The Emergency Number worldwide for  Mobile   is 112.
If you find yourself out of the coverage area of  your mobile; network and there is an emergency,  dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.

Have you locked your keys in the car?
Does your car have remote key-less entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person  at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other 'remote' for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

Hidden Battery   Power
Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys  *3370#. Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.

How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone:     * # 0 6 #. A 15 digit code will appear on the screen.
This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone gets stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

ATM - PIN Number Reversal - Good to Know
If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM machine, you can notify the police by entering your PIN # in reverse.
For example, if your pin number is 1234, then you would put in 4321. The ATM system recognizes that your PIN number is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine. 
The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to the robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to the location.
