The causes of sleep loss are multifactorial and it fall under two major, somewhat overlapping categories: lifestyle or occupational such as shift work, prolonged working hours, irregular sleep schedules, and sleep disorders such as Breathing-Related Sleep Disorders, narcolepsy, circadian rhythm disorders, Restless Leg Syndrome. Unfortunately, available epidemiological data are not sufficient to determine the extent to which sleep loss is caused by pathology versus behavioural components. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effect of occupational therapy intervention in insomnia among people with anxiety. METHODS: Totally 30 subjects, 15 in experimental group and 15 in control group with age of 20 to 45 years participated in current study. RESULTS: The mean of post-test was found to be 96 (control) and 62.93 (experimental) respectively. The calculated ‘t’ value was obtained to be 3.785 with level of significance 0.05. Statistical significance is present in experimental group than control group with regard to effect of occupational therapy intervention with conventional therapy.
