5 Signs You May Have Insomnia

Walking up in the middle of the night and not falling a sleep 

It is too hard to fall asleep and when you do fall asleep you wake up in the middle of the night for no reason. It happens! There might be a lot of thoughts bombarding in your head, all of a sudden you can hear yourself. You will be tired physically, but your head won’t rest. You won’t know what to do. It is normal to wake up in the night to use the restroom or to drink a glass of water, but if you have insomnia, it is close to impossible to fall asleep within 30 mins.  


It is just 12 pm and you feel like your done for the day! You know you feel tired that you can’t do anything. You are not energized rather you feel drained. Physically and mentally, you are tired. You lose motivation, you give up easily, you can’t do the regular activities and your work gets piled up. 

Mood swings and behavioral changes 

Sleep-deprived people are often moody! They feel irritated. If you feel like you’re depressed often, you have no interest in your hobbies anymore, you cannot get productive, you just want to be alone and not get along with people, you are filled with this rage that you have never experienced or you feel you have lost it, then sleep is all you need! A simple sound can make you angry and you may end up yelling at someone, you did not mean to for no reason. 

Inability to concentrate 

Without sleep you will feel drowsy all day, weak and lost. You will have no energy to do any of your work. You will feel lazy and will want to take a day off. Your ability to make a judgement or decision will be compromised and will often end up either taking the wrong call or doing nothing. Frequent occurrence may be a sign of insomnia.
