Mind Games!!!!! To help me fall asleep.... Tell me yours

For years, when I couldn't sleep for whatever reason, I was able to mindlessly play this game where I would picture my dream flat (which was an actual place I had spent time) and arrange the furniture in it how I would do it if it was mine. Now it doesn't work. What are your mental mindless games you use to drift off to sleep, or relax?
I could spend quite a while thinking about that dream house quite happily, over and over again, and eventually fall asleep. But even if I was still awake, I could lay there content for a long time visualizing that house.
But now I live in a new country and my dream house feels soooooo far away, deep inside, I know I will not live there again (at least not any time soon) so imagining that place doesn't do the trick anymore. Its just occurred to me that I should maybe find my new dream house here- so when I have time I will search the listings and go to some open houses.... but that could take a while.
One thing I could try is spending a million dollars/pounds whatever in my head, but since it is very difficult to actually visualize in a compact way I end up going back to whatever negative loop is keeping me awake....
