Insomnia is a common sleep disorder in which individuals struggle to get the amount of sleep needed to function efficiently. Even when in the right environment and having time to sleep, individuals with insomnia may have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting good quality sleep. Short-term insomnia is very common and can be caused by stress, travel, and more. Long-term insomnia lasts for more than three weeks, and those experiencing it should speak with their health care provider for further help. Treating insomnia can help get individuals back to normal sleeping habits, which can lead to many improvements in day to day life.
