How Does CBT-I Sleep Therapy Work?
CBT-I Sleep Therapy targets your worries and actions around sleep by forming a new connection to sleep.
It is normal to not be able to sleep when you have stress in your life. A lot of people can’t sleep when you lose your job, fight with your spouse, or make difficult financial decisions.
Insomnia develops after you start to worry about your sleep. The more you worry, the more you can’t sleep. The more you can’t sleep, the more you worry.
After you worry, you try everything to sleep:
going to bed earlier
going to bed later
Instead of helping, these actions become a vehicle for the sleep worry, bringing into the bedroom.
