What is Insomnia? Insomnia is a lack of sleep during the night. Can insomnia be limitless? Yes it can depending on the type of insomnia you have. It can last for nights on end. Here is a list of ways to treat it. Everyone has a little bit of insomnia in their life, I know for certain that I do, and most of the people that I talk to do too. They might not have insomnia all the time but at least once in a person’s life, they experience this. Let’s talk about what causes insomnia and how to fix it, also when my insomnia started and how I deal with it. First off what is Insomnia, according to the the definition of insomnia is insomnia is a persistent disorder that can make it hard to fall asleep, hard to stay asleep or both, despite the opportunity for adequate sleep. With Insomnia, you usually awaken feeling unrefreshed, which takes a toll on your ability to function during the day. Insomnia can take a toll on not only your energy level and mood but also your health work performance and quality of life. It can be limitless or feel limitless but it also can be fixed. Not being able to sleep at night is very difficult however, because it really does take a toll on your body.

Here is a list of things that can cause insomnia

  • Difficulty falling asleep despite being tired
  • Waking up frequently during the night
  • Trouble getting back to sleep when awakened
  • Exhausting sleep
  • Relying on sleeping pills or alcohol to fall asleep
  • Waking up too early in the morning
  • Daytime drowsiness, fatigue, or irritability
  • Difficulty concentrating during the day

Insomnia is a disease that a lot of people have, and most of them probably don’t even know it. Kids in high school might think that they have it because they are staying up late doing homework to get by in school, but that is not what insomnia is. Although staying up late doing homework is normal and might not cause insomnia for some it might for others. If you listen to your teenager when they say my brain will never turn off after a late night of doing homework and getting to bed after midnight. That might be the first sign. After staying up late doing homework and then trying to go to sleep for a few hours before having to get up for school, might be a challenge. The more you don't sleep at night the more you will feel sluggish and gross during the day and nobody likes that. The limitless tired feeling you have isn't great either.

Most high school students suffer from Insomnia or something along those lines because of the amount of homework they have, although homework is important, your sleep is too. Sure you could probably start your homework earlier, and most of the time you do but there is just so much that, you stay up until after midnight finishing it. When that happens, it is a reality check that is how life will be like when you get older and have your own kids. When you finally actually get to go to sleep, do you find that your mind won’t shut off? That is when insomnia really sets in this usually happens because you have had a very long active day. With a long active day, your brain is in overdrive and won’t shut off. How do you deal with that?

I know that I suffer from Insomnia from time to time, although it is not diagnosed. My insomnia depends on what I do throughout the day, like most people. There are things that can help people with sleeping at night without having to be diagnosed, sleepy time tea, a warm glass of milk, music or even reading a book are all examples of things that can help people fall asleep. There can also be strange things that help people sleep at night, for example, if I don’t have my cell phone in my room at night it is very hard for me to fall asleep. I know that sounds strange but it is true, I am not on it all night long I just text before I go to bed, and that seems to make me sleep better, weird I know but hey whatever works right. Depending on the night I will sleep through it or I may not and when I don’t sometimes I will read a book on my phone or listen to music on it because it’s an iPhone and music helps me sleep.

Although my insomnia is due to what I do throughout the day, and I know that, sometimes it really bugs me when I am really tired but can’t sleep doesn’t it bug you? So what can we do about it, as I mentioned before drink warm milk or sleepy time tea or read a book, or listen to music to make you feel sleepy sometimes for me sending a text message works, too weird I know but whatever works and if you can sleep after that for the rest of the night then that is good right. If you suffer from insomnia figure out what works for you to help you sleep and use that, it will help you in the future. Insomnia is a disease that may be able to be cured it just depends on the person and how bad it is.

Insomnia can be caused by things that most people wouldn't even think of, sometimes even in a limitless way, for example, a long stressful day at work, your family life, your eating habits.
