The term ‘insomnia’ does not refer to the night or two of poor sleep all have now and then, especially associated with stressful life events. Insomnia is a difficulty of at least one month’s duration involving problems initiating sleep, maintaining sleep, or early-morning awakening with inability to return to sleep. Insomnia can lead to significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, educational, academic, behavioral, or other important areas of functioning.

Getting enough quality sleep can help protect your mental health, physical health and quality of life. Without adequate sleep, your mood is affected, you can’t focus and you are unable to pay attention. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development.

“Insufficient sleep is associated with increased emotional reactivity and emotional disturbance, which eventually leads to more serious mental health problems and mental disorders.”


In Malaysia, approximately 35 per cent of the general population suffers from insomnia symptoms and 12.2 per cent have chronic insomnia.
Chronic insomnia can even contribute to serious health problems.

Symptoms of Insomnia may include:

  • · Difficulty falling asleep at night

  • · Waking up during the night

  • · Waking in the morning not feeling restored

  • · Daytime tiredness or sleepiness

  • · Irritability, depression or anxiety

  • · Difficulty paying attention, focusing on tasks or remembering

  • · Increased errors or accidents

  • · On-going worries about sleep
