You might have Insomnia. What I used to do to bypass this is I drink some warm milk and turn off everything that creates noise in the room. Actually, if it helps, I suggest you get an ambient sound app on your device. Soundrown is a personal favorite of mine.

Thank you. I know they did some studies when I was little but I don't remember what happened. But I will try and hopefully it works. Thank you.

Sleeping pills  .. No dont. Crank up the A.C, enough to make u shiver.. Cover yourself with a cosy blanket, that sudden warmth helps me get to sleep in a jiffy

Start winding down one or two hours before bedtime. Dim the lights, turn off the TV or at least turn down the volume, start preparing your mind and body for sleep. Bedroom should be dark, calm, uncluttered and cool air. If you have the possibility, keep the bedroom only for sleep, no work or daytime activities. There are also natural remedies that can help you sleep, visit a store that sells herbal medicines. If nothing else helps there's nothing wrong with taking sleeping pills. Sleep is one of the most important things for maintaining good health. I've had severe sleeping problems since I was a child, and these are my best strategies.

Melatonin, is a natural sleep aid you can find in the vitamin section at your local store, I know several people who use it and swear by it.

I use liquid melatonin because I can adjust how much to take. If you're vegetarian, make sure to read the label. Some capsules are made of gelatin; the melatonin itself can come from bovine or other animal sources.

Some natural herbal tea mix could help you. And dont workout some 2-3 hours before bed,it could be the reason if you do some intense activities,working or other emotional things.just calm down.recently i have read that  it is enough 15 minutes of lying down calm to  fell asleep,havent tested it yet but may work.

Oh yes, herbal tea! There's one called Sleepy Time, I think it's by a British manufacturer, that knocks you right out.

Great advice Anna and Anete.
Another thing to try is one of the sleep monitoring apps available. Many of them come with 'white noise' lullaby tracks (like rainstorms, ocean waves, etc) which I have found help me when I can't sleep. (I use 'Sleep by Android' on my Samsung phone - should be one similar for iPhones)

I've had lots of help from the sleep tracker I use, SleepBot. I now know how many hours of sleep I need and I've also learned to go to bed and get up at roughly the same time every day, which has lead to much better sleeping quality.

I have a similar problem. Try to take a hot bath, put oil in the water and give yourself a gentle massage. Drink a non-caffeinated tea (mint, chamomile) with milk. Try to turn off electronics, as the light interferes with melatonin in your body that you need to fall asleep.
