An estimated 30 – 50 percent of the UK population suffer from some form of insomnia at some point in their lives, including difficulty falling asleep, waking up during the night or waking up early in the morning.
The effects of prolonged sleeplessness can be really debilitating and can seriously impair a person’s ability to function normally or enjoy life. Symptoms can range from fatigue, lack of motivation, irritability, reduced problem-solving skills, inability to cope with stress, reduced immunity and weight gain.
