Insomnia is a sleep problem that affects millions of people around the world regularly. Insomniacs have a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. Adults require at least 7–9 hours of sleep per 24-hour period, depending on their age, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Insomnia can cause exhaustion during the day, difficulties concentrating, and other issues. It may enhance the risk of different ailments in the long run.

Insomniacs have a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. They may have a habit of waking up too early. This can result in problems such as:

1. Daytime fatigue and sluggishness

2. A general sense of mental and physical ill-health

3. Anxiety, impatience, and mood swings

In addition, the factors listed above may contribute to insomnia as causes, effects, or both.

In addition, insomnia may contribute to the development of chronic disorders such as:

 a. Obesity

b. Diabetes

c. Cardiovascular disease.

d. Depression.

Common Causes of insomnia

Insomnia can be caused by a variety of physical and mental reasons. Frequently, the cause is a transient issue, such as short-term stress. In certain cases, sleeplessness is caused by an underlying medical problem.

Among the most common causes are:

1. Dealing with jet lag, working shift changes, or any other adjustments to the body's internal clock.

2. The room is too hot, cold, or noisy, or the bed being uncomfortable.

3. Bipolar disorder.

4. Getting too little physical exercise.

5. Having night terrors or bad dreams.

6. Using recreational drugs, such as cocaine or ecstasy.

7. Depression.

8. Anxiety.

Note: Sleep problems are frequently caused by symptoms of another illness or a natural transition. Hormonal changes, for example, might cause night sweats, which can disrupt sleep during menopause. Sleep patterns are disrupted or altered in persons with Alzheimer's disease due to brain abnormalities. In addition, some people suffer from fatal familial insomnia, a rare genetic illness that hinders sleep and can be fatal.

How to Prevent sleeping problems.

Insomnia can be managed using a variety of methods and techniques. Changes are being made to:

1. Create a routine by going to bed and waking up at the same time.

2. Before going to bed, avoid using any gadget that has a screen.

3. An hour before night, start winding down by taking a bath, for example.

4. Keep phones and other electronic gadgets out of your room.
