Hi Slowly, For me it is all about routine. I am a really bad sleeper, have been for years but I don't take anything for it. I have tried camomile tea about 3/4 hour beore I want to go to bed and that helps sometimes, but not always. I guess I get about 3-4 hours sleep per night but not all in one go. The best thing I have found that fits with me is to NEVER fall asleep during the day no matter how tired I am, stay up really late (3-4am) for as many days as possible and then go to bed about 11pm with something to read, it is almost a guarentee that I will get one good nights sleep every couple of weeks. I used to worry about it alot, but it seems when I accepted that I was a bad sleeper, it was ok, I stopped being so ratty with everyone. Especially as this routine works for me - having one good nights sleep can keep me going for a while.
