What type of insomnia is robbing you of sleep?

Insomnia takes many forms, from temporary disruptions to sustained difficulties is getting adequate rest.
See what type of insomnia you have below:

You experience a brief period of sleep loss that coincides with a temporary life event, such as having a baby, receiving bad news, or traveling.

You suffer prolonged sleep loss for three nights a week for at three months or more, and you have a history of this pattern.

You struggle to fall asleep or stay asleep due to physical or mental health conditions, such as depression or chronic pain.

You lie down at bedtime praying you fall asleep, but hours later you’re still wide-awake thinking about work or listening to the ceiling fan spin above you.

You fall asleep as soon as you hit the pillow, but two hours later you’re awake again and can’t get back to sleep.

Each type of insomnia requires a different approach and personalized treatment plan.
