All About Insomnia

Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder in the world. Approximately 30% of adults have symptoms of insomnia and over 10% may have chronic insomnia, making it a struggle to get through their waking days. The lack of sleep is a growing public health crisis.

This plush representation features an idyllic nighttime scene of counting sheep. For families, teachers, healthcare professionals, public health agencies and friends - this is a unique, memorable and useful tool to help educate, spread awareness, and hopefully, get more people talking about this complicated and vitally important mental health topic.

        FACTS: Have you ever counted imaginary sheep to help your mind relax and fall asleep at night? For people with insomnia, it’s not that simple. Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder in the world. Approximately 30% of adults have symptoms of insomnia and over 10% may have chronic insomnia, making it a struggle to get through their waking days. The lack of sleep is a growing public health crisis.

        Insomnia is characterized by difficulty falling and staying asleep, often leading to sleep deprivation and fatigue. It occurs if you cannot produce sufficient sleep quantity and quality, even when giving yourself enough time to try to sleep. Short-term insomnia that lasts no more than a few weeks is known as acute or adjustment insomnia. Chronic insomnia is when the disorder occurs at least three nights each week for more than three months. Insomnia is further defined as primary or secondary. Primary insomnia takes place regardless of any other health condition or mental illness. Triggers include environmental, medical, physical and psychological factors. Stressful events, such as a coronavirus pandemic, often contribute. Secondary insomnia is caused by an illness that inhibits the ability to sleep.

        Many of us fail to obtain the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep each night. Insomnia and sleep loss of any type are hazardous to your health, contributing to weight gain, heart attacks, cancer, diabetes, and inflicting devastating effects on the brain and the body. Thankfully, there are methods for improving sleep and insomnia need not be permanent.

        If you suffer from insomnia, cognitive behavioral therapy or medication are more beneficial treatments than counting sheep. Sleeping pills, which sedate your higher brain, are a blunt instrument and not the best first-line treatment. Through cognitive restructuring, relaxation methods, and sleep training techniques, insomniacs can reduce their symptoms and learn to fall and stay asleep at night. Herbal remedies, antihistamines and melatonin supplements can also help. Speak with your healthcare professional and visit the National Sleep Foundation website for excellent information on the world of sleep science and health.
