It certainly can: The most common reason these days for insomnia is the failure to "wind down" from the daytime activities and thoughts. In part this is because we have created a world in which artificial light and technology allow us to be busy straight through to bedtime. Unfortunately, our brains are still designed to work in a world where the sun slowly sets and then we go to sleep with not much happening.
