To quickly fall asleep, i usually just lay down and think about the day that just ended and let myself sink in. But i havent sleep for 2 nights already, so i should probably try and get some rest soon, lol.

Try taking melatonin when you have trouble falling asleep.

Soft classical music played quietly helps me at times.

I've tried melatonin, it doesn't do anything. Ambien ER stopped working. I've started playing planet earth on my phone at night(well morning since I work at night), just so the sound is playing but the screen is off. That seems to be helping. For now.

Drinking milk before sleeping helps too for some.

Also, I've read that drinking citrusy stuff helps you get sleepy. This actually works for me too. Well, I have these Halls Defense candy with the grapefruit flavor. Every time I take one of those, no matter what I do, I get groggy. Idk if it will work for you, but it sure heck works for me.

Food for thought:
What makes one have problems with sleep may be due to vitamin and mineral imbalances, which is why citrus fruits (high in vitamins) could help one with falling asleep.

Check out this article too for more informations of what types of food could help you with sleep(:
