Staring into any screen for extended periods can stimulate mental activity and make it hard to relax before bedtime, potentially increasing stress and anxiety levels. Therefore, it is advisable to minimize screen usage before sleeping; try reading a book or engaging in relaxation techniques such as guided visualization. You could even use an app for this.
Smoking has an addictive and stimulating effect on the body that may make sleeping difficult, but you could try switching up your relaxation technique such as listening to soothing music while trying to sleep.
