hope you are doing good. Sometimes it can be hard to switch off when you're stressed out - but don't despair.Getting a good night's sleep can be a real problem when you're working hard. You close your eyes and your brain wakes up - and then you lie in bed awake for hours wishing you could fall asleep.If you want to be on top form in an exam then it's essential you get a good night sleep.
There are things you can do to ensure a better night's sleep
Stop your revision a good hour before you want to sleep - Your brain needs time to switch off and unwind.

Do some exercise; it's a great way to reduce stress levels and tire you out to help sleep.

Don't eat a heavy meal too close to going to bed or your body will not be able to relax, because it will still be digesting the food.

Avoid caffeinated drinks such as tea, coffee, or cola after at least before going to bed

Have a milky drink. It contains a chemical called tryptophan which is an essential component of the body's sleep mechanism.

Sleep in complete darkness or as close to it as you can; that way there is less to distract your eyes.

Wear socks to bed. Due to the fact they have the poorest circulation in the body they can often feel cold when you go to bed.

If you really can't get to sleep, don't panic - it won't help. Get up and do something monotonous like filing some notes or folding clothes.

Try to relax your self don't panic. These tips will help you with your sleeping
take care
