In brief: Very common

This is very common.
Best techniques, as simple and repetitious as they may be, are breathing and relaxation exercises (body scan meditation) as well as visualization exercises (like vivid recall of mellow pleasurable experience in your life). You'll find, with practice, one or two "go to" things that produce a relaxed feeling making it easier to fall asleep.
