Lots of good info on the web. My personal routine is that I visualize myself on a blazing hot beach, lying in warm sand. I start at my toes and work my way up the body, naming parts and telling them to relax. "Toes relax, it's been a long day it's time to go to sleep. Soles relax, it's been a long day..." you get the idea. As I name each part I envision it sinking into the sand a little more and the sun warming and relaxing it. I work my way up the body and I usually fall asleep before I get to my neck. It takes practice, but the repetition calms the right side of the brain and the imagery/feelings occupy the left.
We grow too soon old, and too late smart.
