In brief: Sleepless without rx

Looking into the root cause of why you are unable to sleep will provide the answer. If you have insomnia the best treatment option is CBT for insomnia.
Sleep apnea is another common condition that causes poor sleep. Seeking out medical attention from a sleep specialist can help find out why you were unable to sleep without medications.

In brief: Focus on Breathing

Slow, rhythmic breathing, extending the duration of the exhale, can calm the mind and body, allowing you to settle into sleep more effectively.
Empty your mind of everything but your attention to your breathing.
