Can't sleep, what are some of your tricks?

So I got woken up and now I can't go back to sleep! What are some of your tricks to get to sleep?

Dude at work swears weed oil is the trick, he takes it every night. Not sure how safe that is if your job drug tests.
I ate a lot of hot wings just before bed and here I am posting on barf in the am so put that on the list of things not to do.

Watch TV, if I'm really up, I'll play a video game.

I know all about that "screen time keeps you awake", but typically when I can't sleep, it's because my mind is off doing it's own thing, so I need to shut it up with distraction, and reading takes too much energy.

So, I watch TV.

Also, notably, if I can't get to sleep in 15m, I get back up. I won't just lay there.

I have not tried that, good idea. His voice is very soothing, "we will place a happy little tree right here"

Good idea I guess we can all try that. In case you want logs explained, Bob Ross style, here is what I stumbled upon too.. (have yet to try it however.)
