Can I Watch A Movie Before Sleep to Treat Insomnia?

Q:
Can I watch a movie before sleep to treat insomnia?

A:
It is not recommended to do so. After watching a movie, you may feel more excited. If it is a sad movie, you may be emotional and find it harder to stay calm and fall asleep.

But if you have done so, try not to think about the plots of the movie. Soothing music and a hot bath may help you.

Besides, it is better to leave your electronic devices out of your bedroom. The light from the screens can stimulate your brain, leading to more serious insomnia.
