The only advice I can give without knowing the details is to follow good sleep hygiene principles.

See this fact sheet:
http://www.uhn.ca/docs/HealthInfo/Shared%20Documents/Sleep_Hygiene_Helpful_Hints_to_Make_You_Sleep_Better.pdf
I've actually tried a lot of the advice on this sheet and found it helpful. Although it doesn't fix a sleep disorder, it helps.

Occupational therapy has helped me in a lot of ways :)
If general sleep hygiene doesn't do the trick, maybe seeing an occupational therapist would help.

I agree w/ Jasmine. Good sleep hygiene is very important and a good place to start. If sleep continues to be an issue, don't be afraid to talk to your doc about it. Sometimes things like meds we take can cause problems and just changing the times we take them or tweaking the dosages may help. Other times, the doc may prescribe something for sleep, even different types of meds, such as anxiety meds or benadryl or meds specifically designed for sleep. There are always OTC meds for sleep. Whatever you do, if you are going to use any kind of med, PLEASE talk to your doctor first. They can help you figure out what would work for you and not interfere with any other meds or medical conditions you have.

Hope you are sleeping better soon!
