The modern hectic lifestyle combined with workplace stress and bad lifestyle habits such as staying up late and irregular eating habits can result in the imbalance in yin-yang, organs and the harmony between the heart, liver, spleen and kidney systems. This causes the imbalance of the heart and mind and disharmony of the liver and spleen. The fast-paced modern society is the main cause for the increasing trend in the occurrence of insomnia, which affects the quality of life, work productivity and can even reduce immune system function.
