There are ways you can trick yourself into dozing off. Just remember first thing first, try therapy and do these tricks. Record how much and when you sleep, fatigue levels throughout the day, and any other symptoms. Establish a regular bedtime routine (Find activities that help you wind down before bed), use the bed appropriately, don’t smoke, see a doctor, exercise early in the day and limit caffeine.

Good suggestions from LeenaMarilda. To that I would add much insomnia comes from worry about sleep itself, and bad sleep habits. If this continues to be an issue, you might look into CBT sleep training methods. CBT is cognitive behavioral therapy, and it usually is very helpful when there is no underlying medical problem causing insomnia.

I heard it's a very prevalent problem. People of all ages suffer from it. I'm not an exception. I drink green tea with mint and camomile before sleeping and it helps me to solve this problem. You may try black tea with these components too, perhaps it will help you. Good luck!

You really should avoid all caffeine....tea has caffeine...even the tea that says no caffeine has caffeine in it....only plain peppermint & fruit is no tea at all...chamomile is ok.....coffee, chocolate, soda and energy drinks should be avoided......there is a tape of the ocean going in & out ....very helpful.......music on very soft......a fan blowing low air.......something to mask the sound inside. If reading in bed helps your eyes become tired than that is good for you. Watching TV will keep your mind going.
Best wishes for a good nights sleep...You will feel better and better each day that you get more sleep.
