If you have trouble sleeping, it can affect your daily routine and mental outlook. Some people have occasional problems falling or staying asleep, while others suffer from insomnia every night.
Getting a good night’s sleep is essential to your health and well-being, but sleepless nights are all too common. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 100 million people in the U.S. don’t get enough sleep, of which approximately 70 million have a sleep disorder.
Sleep therapy is a form of therapy designed to improve the quality of your sleep. It can help with sleep disorders like insomnia. It may also help with other mental and physical health conditions. Sleep therapy is also known as sleep re-training, behavioral therapy, and stimulus control therapy. It’s a type of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that aims to treat insomnia by changing the way you think and behave around sleep. Most sleep therapists use some form of CBT to help you improve your sleep habits and make changes to your thoughts and behaviors.
Sleep therapy is designed to help you make the changes needed to start sleeping better. It involves learning about your sleep habits and how they can affect your overall health. Then you can begin to make changes to your sleep routine, such as going to bed at the same time each night and waking up at the same time each morning.
