It is also include in emotional disturbances that can causes us difficult when sleeping.

So, people who work at night will have a disruption of sleep patterns and have an inverted sleep rhythm. That is, they sleep not in the time to sleep and wake up in the time to sleep.

The most common cause that makes us difficult to sleep is factors of the environment around us. For example if the noise happens around us, it will make us hard to sleep. It make us aware and always be aware of the situation around us. In addition, during sleep we will be unconscious and unaware of the situation around us then we will be fast asleep. Because of the commotion that happened, we are having trouble in sleeping or insomnia.

Insomnia often encountered in daily life. It happened at a young age and elderly. If we can avoid the causes of insomnia, we will not have trouble in sleeping. We can sleep normally.
