Many people have trouble falling asleep, especially when they have a lot going on in their daily life. The danger is that temporary insomnia can become chronic unless you are careful and avoid some common traps.
The first danger is worrying too much about sleep. The more you force it, the harder it gets to go to sleep, so if sleep will not come it is better to resign yourself to staying awake and relax.
The second trap is trying to catch up on lack of sleep with long naps, which can upset the circadian rhythm. Regular habits are important for most people if they want to get a good night's sleep.
Thirdly, many people stay indoors when they are tired, but in fact daylight is the best natural sleeping pill because it resets the circadian rhythm and helps the body naturally welcome night when it arrives.
