Dealing with sleepless nights is a frustrating experience. It also interferes with your day-to-day life. It also has long-term implications and it can affect the quality of your life. 

The amount of sleep time required for each and every adult varies. Generally, adults need between 7-8 hours of sleep every night in order to function properly throughout the day. 

At times, you might experience short-term insomnia which typically lasts around a week or so. However, when insomnia lasts longer than a month, it can be a problem that needs to be managed and solved. 

Insomnia and a lack of sleep is something you don't have to deal with for the rest of your life. You can treat it by getting professional help.
