Insomnia is a very common sleep disorder. If you have insomnia, you may:
- Lie awake for a long time before resting
- Wake up many times during the night and have trouble returning to sleep
- Wake up too early in the morning
- Wake feeling like you haven’t slept at all
This will definitely affect daytime functions like energy, focus or concentration and depression. Most people need about 7-8 hours of sleep to feel refreshed. Acute insomnia lasts a short time and chronic insomnia sufferers can lose sleep 3 or more night a week for months.
Insomnia seems to increase as we age as our hormones are decreasing. Women are more likely to have insomnia than men. Hormonal changes maybe the cause of chronic sleep problems as we age.
