Proper Sleep Hygiene.

This includes things like…

Keep your room dark and cool.
Don’t have electronics in the bedroom and shut off screens one hour before bed.
Make the bedroom a place only for sex and sleep.
Skip the nighttime snacking.
Cut back on caffeine.

In addition to the above, try using sound to get some sleep. Try a fan to help establish a bit of white noise while sleeping or use white noise machine.

You can download an app for your smartphone to create white noise, often for free. There are a variety of apps to choose from and different sounds like rain, thunder, etc.
