    Put The Phone Away

    From Redditor /u/bouadir

    I suggest: Don't use your phone when you are in your bed. Be tired when you go to sleep, so do sport activity during the day. Try to play a river sound.

    Warm Up Those Toes

    From Redditor /u/flingebunt

    This is an interesting one. I usually need my feet to be warm to fall asleep. Even on a hot night I put a blanket over my feet and lower legs.

    Write Down Your Thoughts

     From Redditor /u/EudenDeew

    Take a night to write down those thoughts on your phone, maybe two if needed. It helped me to not think about them again because they are now materialized.

    Don’t Move!

    From Redditor /u/balducien

    Another "technique" that has worked for me is to simply lay flat and DON'T MOVE. Then, after a minute or two, I imagine all of my body parts and focus on how heavy they are, how they stay in the same place. This way I perceive it like the limbs are falling asleep one after another. Then I just try not to move.
