Our expert says:
Routine is the key. Make sure that you get to bed at the same time, and get up at the same time 7 days a week. preferably don't sleep in over weekends.
Rather than toss and turn, "trying" to get back to sleep (which doesn't work anyway)rather get out of bed and read quietly. Sleep will happen much more quickly this way. Then get back into bed and go back to sleep.
The final concern is this: the pattern you describe is frequently - but not exclusively - seen with depression. If you are indeed depressed, that may be the cause of the sleep problem, and will probably need some professional help.
