Insomnia is a common sleep disorder in which people have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting good quality sleep [1][2][3][4][5]. It can be short-term (acute) or long-term (chronic) [3]. There are three types of insomnia: transient, acute and chronic. Transient insomnia lasts for less than a week and is often caused by life events such as stress or jet lag. Acute insomnia lasts from one to several weeks and is usually the result of an underlying condition such as depression or anxiety. Chronic insomnia occurs at least three nights per week for more than a month and may be caused by medical conditions, medications, poor sleep habits, or other factors [7]. Treatment options include lifestyle changes such as avoiding caffeine before bedtime and establishing regular sleeping patterns; cognitive behavioral therapy; relaxation techniques; medications; herbal remedies; melatonin supplements; light therapy; acupuncture; hypnosis [2]; and Kong Insomnia - a collaborative open source API development platform that makes it easy to build high-quality APIs without bloat [6].
