According to the latest findings from Roy Morgan Research, 12% of the Australian population report suffering from insomnia over the last 12 months. Even so, young women aged 18-24 and 25-34 are more than twice as likely than their male peers to experience insomnia. The condition is far more common among women (16%) than men (8%), and is more likely to affect people aged 35 and older. The Roy Morgan data bears this out: Not only are insomniacs more likely than the average Australian to have a BMI (body mass index) classified as obese (33% vs 26%), but they are dramatically more prone to anxiety, depression, and stress.
Female insomnia sufferers report a far higher rate of these three mental health conditions, with 42% being affected by anxiety (compared with 31% of men), 36% experiencing depression (vs 32%), and 57% feeling stressed (vs 48%).


There are several reasons behind this female skew, including the nocturnal demands of new motherhood, hormonal cycles, and an increased tendency towards anxiety, stress, and depression than men (particularly among young women).
For example, our data reveals a higher incidence of insomnia among people who are separated or divorced. To help detect the patterns feeding your insomnia, you will keep a diary for a week or two. These are the good habits that can help anyone sleep better: Go to bed and get up at the same time each day, avoid caffeine and bright lights late in the day, and set a relaxing, consistent bedtime routine. Sleep restriction induces temporary sleep deprivation, so it’s best to avoid long car trips and major work projects during initial therapy, Grandner says.


The breakdown of a marriage is usually a stressful or depressing experience, so in this case, the insomnia would almost certainly be a consequence.
The idea is to break the mental link between wakefulness and the bed — by going to bed only when you are very sleepy. Everything growing mildly animated (sentient would be the best word for it, the lights, the clothes in the closet, observing and jovial).
