    Achieving proper sleep can be difficult. Sleep hygiene (there are some good posts on it, you could also try posting this question in the anxiety forum) helps a person with this concern. One thing to do is go to sleep right
away even if you don't feel tired. Try not to do activating an hour before you go to sleep. If stress is a concern you could talk that over with a therapist or if you are seeing a psychiatrist.
   If you have any physical concerns that can sleep disruption
you could talk this over with your doctor. Other than that there
are some prescription sleep aides that can be of help.
Its best to discuss how any natural sleep aides might work
with a doctor or pharmacist. Long term sleep disruption
can be part of some psychiatric disabilities so that would
have a different cause and follow up.
  These are potential long term solutions.
For tonight see if you can try to lie down
and see if you can rest a while and get
some sleep as you'll probably feel better tomorrow regardless.
