What is the impact of lack of sleep and insomnia on your brain health?

And you might think it’s normal to wake frequently and struggle to get back to sleep.
But it’s not normal and it’s actually quite detrimental to your health.
What are the impacts of long-term lack of sleep?

Here’s what you can do:
