    It probably helps treat your insomnia because you have identified its cause. Use bed room only for sleep and not for mobile or tv. Have a good life style including diet avoid alcohol or smoke. Do regular exercise and relaxation. Have a time discipline and a schedule for work and recreation. Allocate week ends for friends or family and concentrate on your work rest of time.
