In brief: See a dr
You can have sleep problems from snoring, apnea, restless legs, poor sleep hygeine, anxiety/depression, napping during the day, night seizures, noises in the neighborhood waking you up, bed bugs, waking up to use the bathroom, acid reflux, allergies, or any number of things.
I recommend seeing a doctor to get checked out.

Cut down on the TV viewing, Internet surfing, facebook activities. Focus on what's important each day. You can only live each day. Unclutter your mind

Agree w dr. Baez.
Are you using good sleep hygiene? If not, that may be a factor. If you already use good sleep hygiene then you may need medical evaluation. Retire & rise same time each day. Keep bedroom dark & cool & use only for sex & sleep. Turn off tv. No naps. Exercise regularly but not in late evening. No caffeine for 6 hrs & no alcohol or tobacco w/i 2 hrs of sleep. Keep dinner moderate.
