There are so many treatments and products for Insomnia that I have lost count on how many there really are. In this post I am going to talk about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia and how it works.
Shortly it can be called CBT I, so let me explain what is stands for. The cognitive part can be referred to the mind and everything it contributed to Insomnia, behavioral can shortly be defined as the habits that you develop to counter the Insomnia,
Therapy can can also be called treatment but in a psychological point of view (if you know what I mean).
For those of you that are afraid to lie on the couch while the therapist is using his soothing words to hack into your mind, don’t worry, CBT is nothing like that.
CBT can be used for a wide variety of disorders such as depression, anxiety, insomnia or even getting over a relationship.
YES it does work. Sleeping pills and all that other so called “natural” remedies can help, but does not target the root of the problem. They only tackle the symptoms of Insomnia, but can not be regarded as a long term solution for Insomnia. CBT targets the root of Insomnia which is all in the head. CBT is not a magic bullet that will work overnight, but it is the only way to really treat it.
I also have a step-by-step guide in how to get rid of Insomnia. As I said, it is not a magic bullet and can take you up to two months depending on the severity of your Insomnia. To give you an example, you are a computer and CBT is a new program that is installed in your hard drive (can also be called your mind). This new “program” will rewrite your mind to overcome the Insomnia.
