In brief: Sleep hygiene
When getting ready for bed, try turning down lights, the dark environment helps the production of melatonin in the body to make you sleepy.
Try journaling or making a list of the things you are thinking about, but you have to reassure yourself that you will pick up these things in the morning. Try deep breathing and meditation to calm your mind. Try visualization of somewhere calm. Also prayer.
