Are You Tired of Trying to Fall Asleep?
Does thinking about bedtime make you feel anxious? Do you lay there tossing and turning or staring at the ceiling? Are you sick of the constant fatigue from another night of poor sleep? Have you tried everything, but can’t seem to sleep better no matter what you do? Maybe you can’t stop your mind from thinking about your to-do list. Maybe you can’t stop worrying about what the next day will have in store, or you keep replaying yesterday’s events over and over. You feel frustrated with yourself and wonder, why can’t I just go to sleep? You try and try to fall asleep, but still you lay there night after night and start the next day drained and irritable.
Do you fall asleep OK, but are wide awake a few hours later?
You look at the clock and wonder how you will have enough energy to get through the next day. You mind won’t stop calculating how many hours you have left – if you can just go back to sleep now. Maybe you worry that if you do fall asleep again, you won’t wake up on time. You ran out of sheep to count hours ago and don’t know what to do next.
Did you know that poor sleep harms your mood and your health?
Have you noticed that not getting enough sleep makes it harder to focus the next day? Does lack of sleep leave you feeling forgetful and indecisive – or worse, grumpy, and short-tempered? Do you think, “If I could just get more sleep, I would do better at work or have more patience with my family.” Studies show many negative effects from chronic poor sleep – people who do not get enough sleep have a higher risk of being overweight and even of an earlier death.
Maybe you already know how important sleep is, but you don’t want to take medication.
Medication is one of the most common “fixes” for chronic sleep problems, but you might be worried about harmful effects from long-term use. Maybe you worry that they’ll make you feel groggy the next day. You may have even tried them in the past but don’t like the side effects or how they make you feel. If this sounds like you, then CBT-I might be the answer to better sleep and healthy sleep habits without medication.
