But if all else fails, try listening to certain music.
Apparently, it can help you sleep well.
The next time you experience some tossing and turning at night, try to hit play on some relaxing music.
According to Stanford University researchers: 
"listening to music seems to be able to change brain functioning to the same extent as medication."
They also added that music is such an easy tool to use for inducing sleep and getting rid of stress, because almost everyone can access it.
To fall asleep with calming music, you will need to listen for a minimum of 45 minutes in a comfortable position.
Don’t expect it to happen overnight though. To see obvious improvements in the quality of sleep, you will need to make this a habit in as much as three weeks.

“As you are falling asleep, your heart rate begins to slow, and starts to move toward that 60-beats-per-minute range.”

According to Lyz Cooper, founder of the British Academy of Sound Therapy, “Weightless” is an effective sleep inducer because of factors such as:
The British Academy of Sound Therapy also created a playlist of 10 songs that are considered the most relaxing tunes. 
If you don’t like any of the above songs, you can check out Joni Mitchell’s “Blue Room Hotel” and Miles Davis’ “Blue in Green”, which both have 60-80 beats per minute.
Native American, Celtic, Indian stringed-instruments, drums and flutes could also work in calming the brain and inducing sleep.
As a bonus, here's a 10-hour version of Marconi Union's "Weightless":
