First thing, you can try to relax your-self. I normally watch movie when I can not sleep. Of couse, the best movie to watch is the comedy-tye of movies. It can help me to relax and start to feel sleepy. Another way that you can try out is reading a book. Some people said it is the best way to get sleep because even in class we can feel sleepy when reading a book :P.

This happens to me sometimes. When is does, I often find that the reason is because I am thinking so much. I tend to think about what happened during the day, things I should do tomorrow, things I forgot to do, the rest of my week, etc, etc. I spend so much time thinking that I can't fall asleep. I guess when your brain is in action, you can't really relax enough to fall asleep. When this happens, I try to stop thinking about thigs and just drift off. Sometimes even just trying to think about nothing or just the darn helps. If I keep thinking about nothing, I eventually fall asleep. If you have a hard time doing this, though, you should probably stop because it might just end up stressing you out or making you try to think harder. Somtimes even repeating a word like "sleep sleep sleep" and not letting yourself think of anything else helps. Your brain eventually starts to power down for the night and you should drift off. If your sleeping problems aren't thinking-related, however, try taking a sleeping pill or something. I hope it helps!
