Do you struggle to fall asleep no matter how tired you are? Or do you wake up in the middle of the night and stay awake for hours, anxiously waiting to fall asleep?
What is Insomnia?
The word “insomnia’ originates from the Latin “in” (no) and “somnus” (sleep). Insomnia is a sleep disorder that is characterised as having difficulty falling and/or staying asleep.
Insomnia is defined by the quality of your sleep and how you feel after sleeping, therefore having chronic insomnia might contribute to health problems. If you feel drowsy and tired during the day even though you slept for 8 hours, you may be experiencing insomnia.
