Try these:: Have a consistent bedtime and wake up time. No naps. No/very little alcohol. No caffeine (in coffee, tea, soda, chocolate) after noon. No reading/tv/ipad/etc in bed--"bed is for sleep or sex and nothing else". Write ur concerns/worries in a journal before bed. Try meditation/prayer/guided imagery/breathing techniques. Won't fix it immediately, but over time--better sleep!
