When someone says they have trouble sleeping, most people will say, “How hard can it be?”
Insomnia is a sleep disorder which is characterised by difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep. It is usually linked to poor sleeping habits, anxiety and depression. It may occur everyday or a couple of nights per week.
Insomnia is very common in adolescents and young adults. Studies have shown that around 30% of the population complains of sleep disruption.
Although there is no cure for insomnia, relaxing and giving your mind some wind down time before bed can certainly help. In severe cases, sleeping pills may be administered.
