Most of us get too much light at night, when we need darkness to trigger melatonin production, and too little natural light during the day, because we are trapped inside under fluorescents. Try rising with the sun and stepping out first thing, even just for a minute or two, to let your body feel the daylight. Find a time in the day (the earlier, the better) when you can be exposed to natural light for at least half an hour. At night, dim the lights at home: when you go to bed, remember to make the room totally dark (cover digital clock lights in your room). Chances are, you’ll fall asleep more easily and sleep more soundly.
