Why not try a routine?

Give yourself time everynight to relax.

Say at 11.pm have a bath with warm milk or coco. When you finished your bath put something like lavender on your pillow and some relaxing music,

If you do this each day, then it should be easer to fall asleep.

Another thing is to not get stressed if you cant sleep, because that doesnt help. Just remain calm.

when i can't sleep i try closing my eyes for about two to three seconds, then slowly opening them, pretending that they're really heavy, then repeating the whole cycle again.

um, can you understand that? i don't really know how to explain.

but it's kind of like hypnotising your brain that you're really really tired, so you'll sleep in awhile. try to keep your mind calm and don't stress!

hope this helps.

I have the same exact problem and have been having it since I was younger and trust me, you need to start sleeping at night or you'll keep staying awake and you don't want that. Maybe even talk to a doctor if it helps

Whatever you've done to help you be able to sleep better the past few days, maybe you can remember to try it next time you have this going on.
