I have developed work week insomnia. I know YANMD, but what have you found effective for managing this.

I am generally a poor sleeper anyways and I occasionally go through insomnia phases of a few weeks with months of great sleeping. I generally take 1mg of melatonin 30 mins before bed and it works great. I can sleep find on vacation.
Recently, I have developed insomnia on Sunday night which sets off a chain reaction of obsession and several more days of insomia until Thursday or Friday when I'm so tired it doesnt matter.
I have good sleep hygiene and use the bed only for sleeping. There is no tv in the bedroom. I do often use the computer up until the minute I go to bed, but I try to limit my computer screen time after 10pm. I also get up at the same time everyday.
