All my life I had insomnia - decades. Then I listened to a set of tapes and solved it without drugs. The guy presents about 40 or 50 strategies, and suggests that particular ones will work for you. It also explains that sleep patterns are a habit, so it takes about 2-3 months. The ones that worked for me were -

* Strategies to switch my mind off and deal with thoughts

* Understanding that 'sleepiness' is a cycle of about 40 minutes. If you don't put down the book when you feel sleepy, you will go beyond it and have to wait another 40 minutes.

* etc.

I have no affiliation with this at all. http://www.sleepbetter.com.au/

Having said that, it's 4:25am and I'm awake. It doesn't address jetlag!

Exercise -cardio...or work physically doing construction or something outdoorsy. Do it for 2 weeks or more and you'll get sleepy with time. Have a beer at the end of a hard day's work and you should be good :)
