    Unfortunately I have no recommendations :( I do the same thing though, so you're not alone. Put on as much ambient music/sounds as you can and try deep breathing?

    Agreed with the comment about sleep music. Sometimes it helps me to something to get the days thoughts off my mind. Like I’ll watch a nature show or a movie that I’ve already seen before (so I don’t keep watching so I can find out what happens next). After I do that it is easier for me to transition to sleeping. Also, if I lay down and I just want sleep sometimes moving to a different place to sleep like the couch or floor kind of resets things and helps me sleep. I also takes sleep meds which helps a lot. Doing something relaxing like taking a bath helps as well. They make epson salt with melatonin it it which is so relaxing.
