Relax & sleep.: Find a quiet place - do so. Breath in slowly; deeply through your nostrils. Fill your lungs with air (but not to the point of discomfort). Hold for a count of six then slowly begin to exhale through an open mouth. Repeat at least 12 times, longer if you need to. Make sure your bedroom is dark & cool.

See your doctor: There could be multiple reasons for your difficulty getting to sleep -- so you need a good evaluation and diagnosis first. Seeing your our primary care physician would be your best initial step. S/he may also want you to see additional specialists, and/or have additional testing like sleep studies, etc. Good luck to you.

Cool Down: Short answer is try to stay cool by wearing lighter clothing, decreasing warmth of blankets, and lower the temp in room. If you are having "night sweats" or significant temperature intolerance, then you should see your primary doctor to have a quick check-up. Hope this helps!

Sleep help: You can try things like going to bed at the same time, getting up if you are not asleep within 15 minutes, avoiding alcohol, getting plenty of exercise at least an hour before bedtime, taking melatonin, and avoiding naps during the day. If you continue to have problems it would be wise to see a sleep specialist for an evaluation and further options.
