If you go for a nice walk, get intimate with your partner, or take an hour in at the gym your body will want to rest making sleep more attainable. 

Try melatonin, essential oils or CBD products to help you sleep. Some people simply cannot turn their brains off and it makes it impossible to fall asleep.
