|How to get a good night's sleep|
If you live in a noisy neighbourhood buy a white noise generator, or a table fountain. Running a small fan works well. If those don't work, get a good pair of earplugs.
You may need to practice this technique before it is fully functional for you. If you are used to allowing your thoughts to stray, or "catastrophizing", or ruminating, practice will allow you to use this technique effectively to calm your mind.
Some people find it helpful to get up and write down their ruminations They use affirmations afterwards e.g. "I will deal with all this in the morning", to calm their thoughts Some find it helpful to set out a plan of action for the morning e.g. "I will call X myself and talk about the situation."
