Wired and Tired?: I recommend you take a warm bath with Epsom salts in it, drink some hot chamomile tea, take melatonin (about 2mg), and lie down in your bed. There are lots of smartphone apps with bedtime hypnosis or meditation tracts that might help, too. If that doesn't help and you continue to have this problem repeatedly, then see your doctor. I wish you the very best.
