In brief: Good Sleep Hygiene

Best way to deal with insomnia is through making sure you're using good sleep practices.
Like: keeping the same sleep & wake times even on weekends; ensure that your room is quiet, dark, & cool -- with no tv or computers on; comfy bedding; avoid alcohol & meals within 3 hours of sleep; no caffeine after 12 noon; sleep ritual of soft lights, hot bath, etc. For more: http://tinyurl.Com/lpcwhxt.

In brief: Insomnia

Daily exercise, limit alcohol and caffeine, manage stress, proper sleep and nutrition.
Meditation and relaxation techniques also help. If insomnia continues consult with a clinical psychologist who can help you develop lasting ways to calm yourself. Also try the anti anxiety app on your phone. Best wishes.
