INSOMNIA

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder. With insomnia, you may have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting good quality sleep. This happens even if you have the time and the right environment to sleep well. Insomnia can get in the way of your daily activities and may make you feel sleepy during the day.

Short-term insomnia may be caused by stress or changes in your schedule or environment.

 

Sleep is a critical component of brain health, yet many people don’t really know what happens in the brain during the stages of sleep.

 

For a long time, it was thought the brain was inactive during sleep, but today, neuroscience has discovered that human sleep is a far more complex process.

 

The complex human brain needs to replenish nightly, and brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia are linked to poor sleep.

Having trouble sleeping is an important symptom of insomnia.

 

There are three main ways this happens:

1. Initial (sleep onset) insomnia: This means you have trouble falling asleep.

2. Middle (maintenance) insomnia: This form makes you wake up in the middle of the night but you fall back asleep. It’s the most common form, affecting almost two-thirds of people with insomnia.

3. Late (early waking) insomnia: This form means you wake up too early in the morning and don’t fall back asleep.

 

Sleep deprivation can also increase the risk of certain conditions:
