Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. This is a common problem in people and it occurs because people are physically tired but are not tired mentally. Maintain a balanced diet and drink lots of water. Also, you can try reading boring books which should help you go to sleep. If this does not help you to sleep often, then see a Doctor after a week. Wishing you the best.
