Insomnia is a sleep disorder that causes difficulty in falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting quality sleep. There are basically 3 types of insomnia which includes transient insomnia (less than one week) acute insomnia (short term) and chronic insomnia (long term.)
People with insomnia cannot fall asleep, or stay asleep long enough to get proper rest. Over time, a lack of sleep can lead to health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and weight gain. Sleep psychologists have specialised knowledge of the sleep psychology processes to study sleep patterns, and evaluate as well as, treat sleep disorders.
