Are you worried about something? What time did you last get up? Are all the events of yesterday swimming around in your head? My suggestion is to do something like reading that usually puts you to sleep. You can also do relaxation meditation. You lay in bed, and, starting with your head, take each body part and say three times slowly "I relax my head, I relax my head... " Think about letting all the tension go in your head as you slowly say the words. Often you will be asleep before you get to your feet. Some people have said drinking some milk will help, but I've never found that to work.
Try to go to bed at the same time each night. Have your room absolutely dark, and cool enough to be comfortable. Use some white noise, like rain or waves. Have you tried melatonin? No computer or tv for 2 hrs before sleep. The light can actually stop your melatonin production so you can't sleep.
