Why do I/ How can I get to sleep if I am anxious sub-consciously and consciously?


Posted by Marc G.

I am a teenager who sometimes, mostly before big tests or tennis matches, cannot sleep.  Sometimes I think about the upcoming event and can't get it off my mind.  I usually twist and turn to get into a "perfect" position (probably also causing me not being able to fall asleep).  Also, I cannot sleep sometimes when I know I have to wake up early the next day.  I even get nervous or frustrated because me not being able to sleep will effect my performance the next day!  I can take tablets such as melatonin but I try not to.  How should I approach going to sleep faster?  Thanks!
