Lol Vida that would be a very short game for me -- I am terrible with actors' names!
I second the melatonin - it worked wonders for me. Make sure you read the bottle, as most melatonin pills are dissolved under the tongue.
What I really recommend is getting into a nighttime routine, one that makes your body think "sleep." Do things in a certain order, and keep them that way for a few weeks. For example: I want to get to sleep by 10:30 pm. At 10, I stop whatever I was doing, and start my "bedtime routine." First, I drink a mug of warm milk, then I go use the washroom, then I wash my face, then I brush my teeth, then I go fill up my water bottle and bring it back to bed with me. Then I make sure my alarm is set, then I dissolve the melatonin under my tongue, and start reading a book.
This routine can be anything, but just have it as a set routine that you do before bed each night, so doing that set of things in that order makes your body think 'sleep.'
Good luck! I hate having bouts of insomnia.
