Sleep issues: Please see your doctor and also reflect on your lifestyle. Avoid using screens of any kind at least an hour prior to going to bed, avoid stimulants from noon on. How is your exercise level? Do you eat a lot of junk food? How do you manage stress? All of the above can play a part but there are lots of reasons to be hopeful. Peace and good health.

INSOMNIA: Getting a good night's sleep is very important for physical and mental health. Insomnia might be due to several different reasons.
