Try exercising/stretching and then taking a warm/hot shower before bed.


The exercise will release some stress and energy, the heat will relax you.


This has worked for me in the past when I was trying to re-adjust my schedule to go to bed earlier.


Also, avoid anything with caffeine or sugar as bedtime nears.


There are also caffeine free herbal teas which contain Valerian, which is supposed to promote restful, natural sleep.

If it happens again, I've heard that you need to concentrate on a single color (black I guess, which is the one beneath your eyelids when it's dark...) and try not to drift into images, especially if they have movement in them... I heard that one once (and I've tried it, and I think it works, lol I dunno...). Good luck and best wishes.
