Working with Insomnia and Sleep Problems
When sleep is easy and regular, you may take it for granted. When sleep is elusive, you struggle to regain it. Often in the struggle, you push it further away. Insomnia is prevalent and will affect most people at some point in their lives. You may have difficulty falling asleep and feel like you’re laying awake for hours worrying about how you will feel the next day. This is called sleep-onset insomnia. Or you may fall asleep fine, but wake up in the middle of the night or too early in the morning. This is called sleep-maintenance insomnia.
There is a specific type of Cognitive Behavior Therapy called Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Insomnia or CBT-I. This is a research-based treatment for insomnia that can help you sleep better and feel better.
