PEOPLE WITH INSOMNIA HAVE DIFFICULTY...
According to the American Psychiatric Association, insomnia is a condition in which people have difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, and/or are waking up too early in the morning. As the most common sleep disorder, insomnia is diagnosed to individuals who experience poor sleep quality or quantity that causes distress or impairment in important areas of functioning.
Insomnia is common, affecting 10% to 35% of the US population. Women, older adults, and individuals with physical or emotional problems report insomnia more frequently. Although women are more likely than men to report sleep difficulties, when examined objectively women in the general population have a better quality of sleep than men do.
