According to her, spending hours on bed is not a prerequisite for a healthy sleep, sleep is not determined by quantity but quality.

She also outlined some symptoms which poses as a sign of insomnia when one encounters difficulties with sleep.

Some people think it’s when they stay in bed for at least 6 hours, then they’ve slept well. Others think if you sleep less than 8 hours, you aren’t sleeping well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, if you are caught up with any of these below, there’s problem with your sleep, otherwise known as insomnia.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Quality of sleep matters..⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

2. Difficultly sustaining sleep( you can wake up several times checking the time, like someone that has important interview coming up)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Early wakening⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Sleep that doesn’t refresh you( this means you feel tired during the day, poor concentration, mood disturbance)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
