In brief: It doesn't.

The brain needs to slow down to sleep.
If you can 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

Depends on why it is racing! job? Marriage? Lousy diet? A grudge? I.
E. Any form of stress. Try simply being quiet and meditating on what is good in your life. Count the blessings and forgive the hurts. A common cause of insomnia is the ingestion of sugar. If so-----cold turkey!
