Most people need 7-8 hours of sleep every night to feel well rested, focused and alert to function well during the day.

Web MD says research has linked insomnia to high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, diabetes, and other ailments. In addition you can feel brain fog, fatigue, depression forgetfulness and have a weakened immunity.

Symptoms of insomnia includes, 30 or more minutes to fall asleep, waking up during the night or too early in the morning

and not being able to go back to sleep.

Some people are short sleepers an do well with less than 6.5 hours of sleep a night. They feel focused and alert without being tired during the day.

Web MD says that there is a little evidence that over-the-counter sleep aids such as melatonin give people with insomnia a better night's sleep and that cognitive behavioral therapy or "talk therapy" is shown to have long-lasting benefits in treating insomnia. Cognitive behavioral therapy involves relaxation techniques.

Remedies to help with insomnia:

-experience massage therapy to help relax mentally and physically

-Mindful meditation= being present in the moment / evokes relaxation

-Practice correct breathing

-exercising / stretching

-Reduce or eliminate caffeine
