Often we keep ourselves distracted from our thoughts and feelings, and we use this as a coping strategy during the day, however when you lay your head down on the pillow you can no longer escape and the things you have been keeping at bay start swirling around in your head, preventing you from getting a good night sleep.
It is important you build time into your day to address all your thoughts and feelings and stop running away from them. You do not need to, nor will you be able to solve everything but often acknowledging your thoughts can help to release them. You could try talking to an adult, a friend or writing them down in a journal.
There are also things you can build into your evening routine to support and encourage sleep. Visit your GP for further support.
