About Insomnia


Insomnia is a common sleep disorder. Generally speaking, Insomnia is the difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep or both, despite the opportunity to do so. This deprivation of sleep or poor quality of sleep leaves the person feeling less than refreshed the next day.

The amount of sleep required to make one feel refreshed can vary from person to person. Four and a half hours of good sleep for some people is more than enough. Others need as many as nine hours or more per day to reach the same level as those who require much less. Regardless of where you fall on this scale, if the quality of sleep you experience is less than optimal, it doesn't matter how many hours are spent doing so. Your body will not rejuvenate itself. You will suffer and will continue to do so until you're able to take steps toward your recovery.


Regardless of how yours was created, all Insomnia is not equal. Those who have studied it have come to a general agreement that there are three main categories of Insomnia; Transient, Acute and Chronic. For the most part, it's the duration or persistence of the complications that identifies them from one another.
