    In order to beat insommia I suggest doing something that will make your body tired. Try working out, taking a shower, cleaning your room.. This can help you. The best thing to do is simply to stay active until you are tired enough to sleep!

    Do you use artificial sweeteners, particularly in soda/cola/soft drinks?  If so, you may want to consider eliminating those sweeteners from your diet.

    If you find out let me know! I too have issues with sleep and no matter what I have done it does not seem to help. I do have sleeping pills but am afraid I will go out and like drive the car or something if I take them!

    You beat it with a pillow!
    Seriously, hot showers help me. But I've been fortunate I suppose, as I don't suffer from it often.

    Some people try meditation and yoga before bedtime to de-stress and clear their minds. Others have tried, chamomile tea, warm milk, bananas, or ice cream. Also recommend no heavy meals or caffeine later in the day. If all else fails a doctor can prescription something like Ambien but if your not used to taking them be careful at first until you see how they will affect you.

    When you find out let me know, beyond chemical help I am having trouble resetting. I think I just have crappy sleep habits, RLS, and sleep apnea.

    If applicable for you, a strong Indica will do you good. It also comes in edible forms if smoking is an issue for you.
