Hi there and welcome to Ask Alex.  

Thank you for sending your question to Ask Alex. We’re glad you were able to get in touch.   

You mentioned that you can’t sleep, and you would like some help in being able to get some sleep. Sleep and creating a sleep routine are very important to improve our mental well-being but sometimes we find it hard to sleep.  

Do you always struggle trying to sleep? It can be useful to talk to others about this. Would you have a trusted adult in your life that you could discuss it with at all? This can be a family member like a parent, an aunt, uncle, grandparent, or someone outside of the family like a teacher, neighbour, or sports coach. It is important that you feel supported and that they can help you with this.
