Well the best way to fix is, is to figure out why you have so much trouble falling asleep.

Some of the reasons could be that its to hot or to could in your room which can be changed easily.
It could be to bright (or maybe its to dark, it makes some people uncomfortable).
You could be hungry or thirsty. For examply if you don't drink enough or eat early in the evening and go to bed late at night.
The air could also be to dry. Putting a small bowl with water somewhere in the room would help a bit with that (especially if the heather is running, then you should put it on the heather or close to it).
Also you blanket could be to heavy, your bed things scratchy or something like that.
Or there is some noise that keeps you awake.
Those are the things easy to solve.

You could also be not able to sleep because something is going on in your head. Maybe something is coming up soon your dreading or your stressed. That can keep you awake easily.
You might be worrying over things, or afraid to forget something. Keeping a notebook beside your bed might help with that one. At least a bit.
Maybe somethings scares you? I have that problem sometimes and it help to check the room. Look below the bed, in the wardrobe and lock the door properly (once I put a small bell infront of it aswell so I would hear if someone or something entered).
If something is on your mind that keeps you awake the best way would probably be to figure out how to solve whatever is on your mind and you should be able to sleep again without problems.

Until its solved, try to not do something exciting before going to bed (like watching a scary movie or stuff like that). Try to unwind and do something calm. Some tea or hot milk with honey might help as well.
Try to go to bed at the same time every day do establish a sleeping rhythm and get up at the same time as well.
If you really can't sleep, sometimes its also a good idea to get up again and read for a few minutes or do some other relaxing things so you don't get frustrated to much.

Hope you will be able to sleep again soon

It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!

It might be helpful to get into a routine of some sort. For some people who struggle with sleep, having a routine can help them wind down and get their mind to a place where they are able to fall asleep.

I agree that figuring out the reason you are struggling to sleep might be a good idea as well. Are you struggling to sleep because your mind is racing? Are you unable to get comfortable? If you can figure out the 'why' you might be able to work on it and get to a place where you sleep easier.

You could talk to a doctor as well. I know, a lot of doctors will suggest some over the counter medication that people can take. If that course of treatment does not work, they will, sometimes prescribe a sleeping pill which can help some people.

Best regards.
