In brief: Sleep hygiene is key

Retire & rise same time each day.
Keep bedroom dark & cool & use only for sex & sleep. Turn off tv. No naps. Exercise regularly but not in late evening. No caffeine for 6 hrs & no alcohol or tobacco w/i 2 hrs of sleep. Keep dinner moderate sized & finish at least 2 to 3 hrs before sleep. Can try warm milk, along w light reading or warm bath.

In brief: Insomnia

Depends on the cause, which needs to be treated.
Also, regulate your sleep hours, go to bed same time and wake up same time.
