What is True Insomnia?

Insomnia is, simply put, the inability to fall sleep when desired and/or the inability to stay asleep for the desired amount of time; it may be a varying combination of the two.  To be considered true insomnia, the sleeplessness must also be accompanied by an adverse affect on performance during one’s waking hours.

That last point is important.  In other words, if you feel like you’re losing sleep but still perform just fine when awake, you may not have insomnia.  If you think you might have insomnia but feel no grogginess, fatigue, or irritability when awake, then you may just need less sleep than you think you need.

That said, however, insomnia is still a very common condition.  Those that do suffer problems stemming from an inability to sleep might take some solace in this fact:  the majority of us describe symptoms of insomnia at some point in our lives.  In fact, a 2002 poll by the National Sleep Foundation found 58% of adults in the U.S. experienced symptoms of insomnia a few nights a week or more.  Of those reporting trouble sleeping, half suffer chronic regular insomnia that can last for years or even decades.

Left untreated, chronic insomniacs may almost forget what a good night’s sleep feels like.  Sleeplessness, restlessness, fatigue become the norm.

This doesn’t have to be you!  The Sleep Training System will show you how to naturally improve and powerfully strengthen your sleep system to the point where you stand a good chance of becoming a normal sleeper again.
