sleep? game on

Last night was my first night to sleep 30 mintues earlier. As part of my break bad habits campaign, I did.

Now here are a few ground rules that I laid out to make sure I sleep 30 minutes earlier (I hope) for the next 21 days or until it becomes a habit, whichever comes first:

1. Go to bed the same time every night.
2. Lights and TV off at least 30 mins before bedtime.
3. No tea one hour before I go to sleep. Not really sure if the caffeine from the tea would affect my sleep habits, but I'm making sure.
4. Experts say lavender induces sleep. Maybe I'll try a little aromatherapy.

Hopefully, these will help me sleep earlier in the next 21 days. Do you have any other suggestions to a peaceful and earlier slumber?
