Preparing to sleep? How are you getting ready for bed?
Try to go to bed around the same time every night - consistency of bed time improves quality of sleep.
Put away the electronics for 1-2 hours before you sleep - and sorry that includes phone/tablet/TV. And avoid eating within two hours of sleeping - an active digestion can disrupt your sleep
