6 Natural Remedies to cure Insomnia and Depression

Insomnia

Insomnia is a sleeping disorder faced by millions of people worldwide.  So my friend – Sound Sleep / “Dreaming is important”,  jokes apart.  It sounds like a minor sleeping disorder but it takes a toll on the health of a person.

Insomnia can affect your lifestyle. Deprivation of sleep makes you feel fatigued or low on energy throughout the day.

It can also affect your mood, and focus on your desired task. This is not all, insomnia can lead you to diseases like depression, obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.

The sleeping hours varies from person to person. Most adults require seven to nine sleeping hours per night.  Rather than the number of hours you sleep, the important is the quality of your sleep per night. Your sleep needs also change as per your age. Many a time you have seen grandparents waking early or mostly you will find them wide awake at night that is because of aging.
