How to fall asleep at the nighttime?

I've been struggling with sleep for a long time no. I didn't fall asleep last night until like 6 AM but woke up around 8. Then I didn't want to get outta bed so I sleep indefinitely to 1 something in the afternoon. From 4 - 7 I fell asleep again. So is there anyway to to sleep earlier and better tonight? I'm 21 btw.

    To sleep better just relax and switch off, if you can.

    If you are having trouble switching off at bedtime some light exercise (for example, push ups or sit ups) at bedtime often helps you to relax, unwind and switch off and that often improves your sleep. Strenuous exercise at bedtime is likely to ruin your sleep.

    Common sleep aids include warm milk, Chamomile tea, 5-HTP, Melatonin and Valerian.

    Sleep enhancing foods are supposed to include turkey, cherries, oatmeal, bananas, wine and others as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=A0oGkmOObYl...

    limit light activity before bedtime. for example, since you are 21 you might be required to use a computer to type up documents. try to do it earlier, because then your body will think it's still during the day because of the light. if you have to, download one of those programs that turn your computer screen light to a setting that is much better for your eyes and can help with your sleep. also, try waking up to the light. your body will get used to that and that is actually what nature is supposed to do (sun light in the morning!)

    this is the best way i've found. good luck.
