Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by difficulty falling or staying asleep.

Individuals with insomnia rarely feel rested upon waking and can experience chronic exhaustion that impacts their health, relationships, work performance, and quality of life. While most everyone experiences sleep disturbances from time to time, long-term insomnia lasts a month or more and makes daily functioning a struggle. Insomnia can be a sole diagnosis, however, it is often caused (or exacerbated by) an underlying mental health or medical condition.
