Insomnia (from the Latin word for sleep: somnus) is characterized by difficulty falling asleep or getting enough sleep. Waking up frequently during the night or very early in the morning are also tell-tale signs of insomnia. Insomnia can severely interfere with activities, causing, for example, difficulties concentrating, irritability, and memory problems. In addition, as we age, many people find it increasingly difficult to maintain their daily rhythm. They struggle to adhere to the 24-hour cycle of a full day. Getting older can also lead to other sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, pain and restless leg syndrome.
