UNRAVELLING INSOMNIA

Insomnia is generally characterised by an inability to fall asleep, stay asleep or both, leaving you feeling sluggish and tired. This can be a short-lived problem (acute insomnia) or go on for months and even years (chronic insomnia). It’s estimated about one-third of adults suffer from acute insomnia at some time in their lives, although this may be as high as 50%. Chronic insomnia isn’t as common, but it does affect about one in every 10 people.

 

A WINDOW INTO THE WORLD OF A WONDER WOMAN

To celebrate Women’s Month, Health Intelligence magazine and ovatoyou teamed up to uncover the myriad roles and responsibilities assumed by busy women every day. “We as women often feel like we are being pulled in a thousand different directions,” says Health Intelligence editor Rosanne Buchanan. “Our recent article on Wonder Woman syndrome speaks to the various unrelenting stresses and pressures experienced by women on a regular basis. It also highlights how spreading oneself too thin can have serious emotional consequences. We wanted to engage with our female readers to find out how busy, multitasking women really spend their days and how this affects their time and energy.”
