Tension and sleep problems are inter-related. Stress, anxiety, nervousness, lack of concentration, confusion and emotional disturbance have large overlapping areas. They are precipitants to (a) headache (b) sleep disturbance and (c) depressive illness. Sleep is known to have a restorative function and is important for conservation of energy and growth. Psychological factors are considered to have main etiological influences on sleep disorders. Insomnia is a condition of inadequate quality and quantity of sleep with prominent symptom of difficulty in getting sleep or early awakening.
