Did you know that humans spend approximately one-third of their life sleeping, unfortunately it’s a lot less than that for insomniacs!

So what is insomnia?

Insomnia is a condition that involves being unable to sleep and comes in different forms, including primary and secondary insomnia.

Primary is when your inability to sleep is not linked to any other condition, with secondary insomnia being when your sleeplessness is caused by another condition, for example depression or cancer.

Then there’s chronic and acute insomnia, with acute insomnia lasting from one night to a couple of weeks and chronic insomnia being when someone suffers at least three nights a week for a month or longer.

Whichever form an insomniac suffers from it can have a seriously detrimental effect on their life, and as a condition it’s much more common than you might think.
