What Is Insomnia?
Insomnia, says dictionary.com, is the “Chronic inability to fall asleep or remain asleep for an adequate length of time.”
We are not talking about staying awake a night a month or having difficulty falling to sleep a few times every so often. Insomnia is about the frustating experience of experience a lack of sleep weekly or daily. It is “chronic” after all.
“To sleep or not to sleep that is the question.“
Some are able to fall asleep, but can not stay asleep. Others stare at a dark ceiling for hours and fall asleep an hour before needing to get up to start the day. Some go days without sleeping and take a half day off to crash.
The good thing is insomnia has a cure. The bad thing is that it takes time to find the cure. Trial and error if you will.
We will talk about causes insomnia later. For now, the focus is on the “what.”
Insomnia, as was defined, creates a problem. This problem, sleep deprivation, has affects that are not often thought about by the general population.
And on it goes.
Fact is insomnia is a lead cause in sleep deprivation (sleep apnea is another making up the majority). With sleep deprivation comes auto accidents, poor job performance, poor human actualization, bad moods, and many other ill wanted outcomes.
The interesting thing is that insomnia is not like cancer. Insomnia is often curable with behavior modification. (Sometimes a sleeping pill can be introduced on an infrequent basis.) It does take discipline. However, that is a much better outlook then facing something that is only controlled through medicine or worse yet, not at all.
Sleep makes a difference
It is important to remember that sleep is important. The chance to get rid of sleep debt and operate at optimal levels is often not available to those that struggle with insomnia. In fact, feeling well rested is such a distant memory that feeling tired feels “normal.” To the sleep deprived.
It is this site’s intent to help bring information to the surface that can give those struggling with insomnia a cure.
