Insomnia is the perception of inadequate sleep resulting in a variety of outcomes. It can lead to a continual sensation of exhaustion, anxiety, and burnout, which seriously impact the performance level. Medical personnel ranging from medical students to consultants are susceptible to sleeplessness. The management and prevention of insomnia require various levels of intervention. Individual-level interventions include setting sleep schedules, using beds properly, abstaining from drinking, and exercising regularly. Similar recommendations at the institutional level include improving the medical curriculum, making the workplace flexible, and keeping an eye on the burnout rate. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of verifiable information that justifies more research.
