    When you have insomnia, a lot of times it's from your mind racing. If you have something going on in your life, or have to be up early the next day it can cause your mind to race, causing insomnia. What you have to do is stop thinking, clear your mind and say sleep, sleep in your mind over and over. Someone told me this worked for them for insomnia.
    There are several over the counter things you can purchase that helps you sleep without waking up feeling drugged up. Primrose oil helps me, I take it every night.

    I've found a very good sleeping aid from Gaba - it's entirely natural too, so there are no nasty side effects.  Exercise and not checking email late at night work great too.

    You need to cool down your mind - the mental chatter need to be kept under control. Stay away from social media and news reports after evening hours. If possible go for a long jog in the evening; it can tire you physically and will help fall asleep.

    In terms of specific remedy, you may try meditation - mediate for half an hour before going to bed. You can also try brainwave audios for insomnia. These audios lower down your brainwave frequencies that help you relax and fall asleep.

    My hubs on mental chatter and brainwave entrainment might give you further information.

    Happy Dreaming. smile

    You should check out binaural beat technology. By playing varying frequencies into each ear, studies have shown that you can alter your brain waves and thus slow them to the same levels experienced while sleeping. I haven't used it for sleep help myself, but I've heard that it has been a useful aid. Good luck!
