How can cognitive behavioral therapy help my insomnia?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Insomnia

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can be an effective insomnia treatment. A cognitive behavioral therapist can help address daytime behavior that might be keeping you awake at night.

For example, a therapist might say that napping during the day, spending long periods of time in bed, drinking a lot of caffeine, and sleeping in on weekends are all habits that can contribute to insomnia. Schedule time with a therapist, or seek out an accredited sleep center in your area for help finding a therapist that can help with your sleep patterns.
