Everyone has there own method, nothing works for everyone and nothing works every time.

I've found a useful technique which have worked on most occasions.

First off make sure you have a good amount of water content, not hungry, not overly fed.

Make sure you don't have to go to the bathroom, cause you will have to just when you are about to doze off.

Eat a good 3 - 4 hours before sleep time.

Take a walk for 1 KM or at least 200 steps after dinner.

Try not to lie on mattress, use something like yoga mat or one of those expensive mattresses that are good for your back.

When lying on the bed, close your eyes think of all the different things that are coming to mind. Let the proverbial thoughts flow. Now paint all those thoughts on the (imaginary) canvas in front of you. And then paint everything white.

Once your head is clear along with a white background noise (I have found a sound with pattern relaxes me, like that of an old ceiling fan, one of those that look like they are about to fall off), or start counting one and two on inhale and exhale.

If you are spiritual by nature and Muslim try replacing one with Allah and two with Hoo, or YAH and WEH if you are a Christian.
