For many people, getting a good night’s sleep has become an unaffordable luxury. The number of people who have insomnia around the world is on a rapid increase. Studies show that nearly 30% of the world’s adult population suffers from sleep deprivation leading to stress and fatigue. If you have been finding it challenging to fall asleep and stay asleep, you probably have insomnia.
Insomnia is of two distinct types classified based on the severity. If you experience a lack of sleep only for a few days due to a recent occurrence or because you have a big day ahead of you in a few hours, then we can say you have acute insomnia because of its briefness. When sleep eludes you at least three times weekly, and you have suffered from this lack of sleep for a minimum of three months, then you have the “Chronic type of insomnia.”
Sleep deprivation could be as a result of some other illness, stress, work, running shifts, change of environment, or even anxiety. Not being able to sleep and not getting enough sleep are equally detrimental to both physical and mental health, but there’s good news for everyone!
