You need to learn to relax! start by having the same bedtime routine, keep you room dark and cool.
Maybe drink chamomile tea, put away the thoughts of the day, take a a warm shower, use medication as a last resort. But if you can't sleep, talk to your doctor and get the help you need. Remember that over the counter sleep aids and alcohol are bad for sleep. The opposite of what most people think.
