See a sleep specialist I'd say. There are many causes of insomnia. Some people seek cognitive behavioral therapy, some find using OTC Melatonin 3 mg before bed helps. Limiting anything stimulating or bright like lights and screens(TV, Computer, gaming) can alert your brain to stay awake. Our body makes melatonin and this is stimulated when our pupils take in less light like when the sun sets and nighttime begins. I turn down lights in the house as it becomes dark outside. Others find reading before bed helps. I do not recommend looking at your clock often when you're laying in bed. Also, don't get into bed until you feel tired. I've heard many OTC sleep aides contain Benadrly or diphenhydramine(generic), which can last long like into the next morning-ugh! Good luck and best bet is to be evluated by a Doctor who specialized in sleep disturbances or disorders I think.
