Can’t fall asleep at night? Or you fall asleep but can’t stay asleep? You may have insomnia. Insomnia occurs when it is very difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep, or both. When you experience insomnia, you typically wake up feeling groggy or like you haven’t slept at all. This can tax your ability to function during the day. Not only can insomnia suck away your energy level and mood, but it can also affect your health, work performance and quality of life.
