Hi lerato,
Gosh, so many different possible causes, physical, psych, or chemical. As Joanne says -- uncomfortable bed, eating a big meal too late and too soon before trying to sleep, drinking alcohol, coffee, or cola within hours of bedtime ; depression ; and physical disorders causing pain and discomfort --- many possible causes. If there's no obvious cause, try avoiding stimulants after 4 pm, reading a boring book in bed, a warm milky drink ( Milo, Ovaltine, etc ) ; and if after 10 minutes you're not getting to sleep, don't lie there tossing and turning, but get up, go to another room, and sit for a while watching dull TV or again reading a calming book, or doing minor house chores, till you feel tired, when you go back to bed and try again

Are you drinking or eating anything too late that could cause it? Bed uncomfy? Going to bed too late/ too early?
