What is Insomnia?

Insomnia is a sleep disorder in which you have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting enough quality sleep. This can happen 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.

There are two main types of insomnia:

  • Short-term insomnia lasts for a few days or weeks. It is often caused by stress, changes in your schedule or environment, or medical conditions.
  • Chronic insomnia lasts for more than 3 months. It can be caused by a combination of factors, including stress, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices.

Insomnia can have a number of negative effects on your health, including:

  • Increased risk of accidents. People with insomnia are more likely to be involved in car accidents and other accidents.
  • Increased risk of chronic health problems. Insomnia has been linked to an increased risk of chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, obesity, and diabetes.
  • Depression and anxiety. Insomnia can increase your risk of depression and anxiety.
  • Substance abuse. People with insomnia are more likely to abuse alcohol and other drugs.
  • Work problems. Insomnia can make it difficult to concentrate and perform well at work.
