What is Insomnia?


Insomnia does not necessarily mean that you can not get any sleep. More specifically, people with insomnia may just have a hard time going to sleep or wake up during the night or just feel that their sleep is just not adequate enough.

Every individual is different in how many hours of sleep their bodies need to feel rested. When you feel deprived of sleep you may have problems performing your daily activities. You may feel tired all day long, or have bouts of being tired throughout the day, you may experience a lack of energy, you may have trouble concentrating, and some people may become irritable and grouchy.

Insomnia can occur in any person no matter the age, culture or sex. Children have even been known to have bouts of insomnia.

It can be brought on by many different things including stress, noises around your home or outside, temperature changes in your environment, side effects to medications, and even can be due to jet lag. In children, insomnia may be come from stress due to nightmares or even problems at school.

If not taken care of properly, it can be a real problem and may lead to other health problems. Without enough restful sleep your body becomes run down and you are more susceptible to colds, viruses and flu. Since concentration and energy becomes a factor, your job performance may suffer and someone that has a go get ‘em attitude could wind up with your promotion. So, you need to get control of insomnia before it begins to control your life.

Try to find the cause to your restless nights sleep. If it is due to medication, then you should talk with your physician. But, if it is due to stress or other outside interferences then you must learn how to manage the problems.
