Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that can make it hard to fall asleep, hard to stay asleep or cause you to wake up too early and not be able to get back to sleep. People with insomnia often report still feeling tired when they wake up. This sleep disorder can sap not only your energy level and mood but also your health, work performance and quality of life.

The Insomnia Severity Index is a tool designed to help you and your healthcare provider measure the impact of insomnia on your daily life. It uses a seven-item questionnaire to rate the nature and symptoms of your sleep problems. This can help you gain a better understanding of your sleep patterns and the extent of your insomnia, which can be a useful first step in seeking treatment and improving your sleep health.
