I believe the best thing first is to talk with a Doctor and/or a Psychologist, because it can either be something in your body that is out of balance or thoughts that get your brain and nervous system all hyped up. In addition, long walks or exercise (nothing strenuous to hurt yourself) during the day and meditating when you go to bed, do tend to help the body release whatever extra energy you accumulate and relax to fall asleep. Hope this helps 🙂
As someone who has dealt with onset insomnia for years here are the things I've found helpful. 1) Seriously, no screens. 2) Valerian root tea helps, but proceed with caution if you have issues with dreams. 3) Don't lie in bed — get up, go somewhere else and read or journal then try again later.
In tracking my mood against my habits, the thing that had the highest correlation to my sleep is my exercise.
- How do I make myself go to sleep? I don’t feel tired until rather late. Any suggestions how to make myself go to sleep?

- What should I do if I feel to anxious at bedtime?
- What motivated you to change your sleep habits?
- I like to sleep under the covers, but I also get easily hot. What bedding do you use to help with this problem?
- How can you make your environment much better than it is now? I would like some suggestion.
- Do you turn off your phones before bed: or do you use the alarm on your phone?
- how to switch brain off when going to sleep. Am overthinker
- What do you do with recurring nightmares?
- When you wake up during the night to use the restroom, do you have a hard time getting back to sleep? What helps you get back to sleep?
