Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
You can follow a good sleep hygiene like sleeping everyday at same time, avoiding exercise and tea/coffee before sleep, not using bed for other activities like studying/net surfing etc. If these simple methods dont work, you need to consult a psychiatrist, who can help you overcome stress and anxiety through medication or other non-pharmacological means.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
You probably are stressing yourself a lot recently. Are you having more tension these days. You need to calm down. Do relaxation exercises like deep breathing, Yoga, Pranayam to help relax. Eat carbohydrate food at night like dosa, rice, idli and avoid high protein at night like lot of chicken and also avoid ver sweet food at night. Drink enough water. When you go to bed, stop thinking or planning anything at all. If these techniques don't work you may consult a Psychiatrist for help in reducing anxiety and/or sleep disorders.
