I think exercise is a great way to sleep better, but not too soon before bed. I always do it in the morning to get it out of the way.
I think one thing that might help is getting into a routine, like getting up and going to bed at the same time. In college it was easy to stay up late and then sleep in or take a nap, but if you are going to be working full time, that would be hard to do.

Taking a warm shower or bath listening to your most relaxing classical music you have that is your favorite, deep breathing, with nice clean sheets and nightgown. Use body washes that relax you not energise you. I love the rosmary and lavendar body creams after a night bath, and nice warm socks. I know you like socks as much as I do, lol. I buy fuzzy soft ones, ones that you can't actually wear with shoes, I only use them after my bath. and then I nice book, even if it is one from childhood that brings back nice memories. I like B2's idea of dr. suess. lol I like Emily Dickenson poetry or Little House books. Something easy to read, and is happy.
Light out! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
