In brief: Turn off brain

When we sleep, it is very important to not think about many things, so that we can fully relax and allow ourselves to fall asleep.
This can be difficult, but it is important to try. If this is still a major problem, i would see a sleep/insomnia expert. Also, avoid caffeine and other stimulating activity prior to sleep.
