What is insomnia?

Insomnia is a sleep disorder that makes it hard to fall asleep, stay asleep and feel rested. It can also cause you to wake up too early, and not be able to fall back to sleep. Over time, insomnia can drain your energy, impact your mood and affect your health, work performance and quality of life.
