Interestingly, insomnia (Latin for "no sleep"), is not about the number of hours you sleep each night. A healthy sleep duration is between seven and nine hours each night and sleep is unique depending on every individual's need and satisfaction. However, your best gauge is how well you feel when you wake and how much energy you have throughout your day. (Now that I'm sleeping so much better, I wake feeling refreshed and enthusiastic about the new day ahead. And that's with getting an average of about seven hours sleep.)
