Insomnia is difficulty getting to sleep and/or staying asleep or suffering from non-restorative sleep. It is estimated that approximately one in four people suffer from insomnia at some point in their life. As well as leaving you feeling drained and exhausted and unable to perform well at work, it can disrupt home life and, in the long term, it can affect your health and immune functioning.
The effects of sleep deprivation and chronic lack of sleep:
- Fatigue, lethargy, and lack of motivation

- Frequent colds and infections (reduced immunity)
- Concentration and memory problems
- Weight gain
- Impaired motor skills and increased risk of accidents

- Physical conditions causing pain or discomfort, including arthritis, hot flushes, restless leg syndrome, headaches, etc.
- Stress, including bereavement, professional worries, financial troubles, anxiety about not sleeping, relationship difficulties, etc.
