What is Insomnia?

Quality sleep plays an important role in general health, development and overall well-being. Lack of adequate sleep on a frequent basis can have an adverse impact on physical and mental health.
If you’re experiencing Insomnia, you may display the following symptoms;
Finding it difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep (fragmented sleep) or both
Experiencing fatigue and difficulty functioning throughout the day
Waking up too early and not able to fall back to sleep. About a third of all adults have experienced some sort of Insomnia related symptoms.
The level of insomnia you experience has a lot to do with the underlying causes of Insomnia. Some possible causes include;
Diet and Lifestyle
A Traumatic event
Physical pain and illness

Although it is not always possible to stop the particular risk factor that results to stress and insomnia (e.g a bereavement or an exam), we are able to reduce the impact of these events on our bodies that result in Insomnia.
