The Daily Mail discusses how CBT can break the cycle for those who feel anxiety at bedtime.
But what if curing insomnia was as simple as talking to someone about it?
Recent research suggests that cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a psychological therapy more commonly used to treat depression and anxiety, could successfully treat sleep problems.
CBT looks at how we think about situations, and how these thoughts affect the way we act and feel.
The idea is to change thinking patterns and behaviour to achieve a more positive outcome – in my case, getting to sleep.
