I read that if you aren’t tired, you should read or do something you enjoy until you’re actually asleep? Usually after I read for a while I fall asleep, just works for me, good luck

I find doing the body scan meditation techniques and focusing on breathing help most of the time. If the thoughts are really loud and hard to quiet down I like to close my eyes and imagine I’m writing my thoughts down. For some reason that usually makes me tired. I’ve done those for a long time now
