2. Too early morning wakening
3. Too many awakenings during the night
4. Lack of restful sleep
5. A combination of these.
Most people have poor sleep at least once in their lifetime
Insomnia is perhaps the most common sleep disorder affecting most people at sometime in their lives.
For such a common sleep disorder insomnia is not well understood by most people.

Primary insomnia is responsible for about one in five cases of long-term insomnia.

These can be medical or mental health disorders, or drug or substance misuse.
1. Transient insomnia happens for only a few days of insomnia,
2. Short-term insomnia happens between one and four weeks.
3. Long-term (or chronic) insomnia happens for four weeks or longer.
Man is the only mammal that is willingly to delay his sleep.
The higher the altitude, the greater is the sleep interference
Normally most healthy adults require seven to nine hours of sleep a night
Sleep is just as essential as diet and exercise.

1. Going to bed at different times each night
2. Daytime napping
3. Poor sleeping environment, such as too much noise or light
4. Using the television, computer, or a mobile device in bed
