What is CBT-I?
Sink into Sleep - About the Book
These are typical experiences of insomnia.
Insomnia is trouble sleeping that occurs on most nights of the week. It can involve difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep (waking up in the night and staying awake), and/or waking too early.
If you have insomnia, you have probably already tried all the sleep hygiene techniques such as avoiding caffeine, having a comfortable bed, not exercising too late at night etc. In fact, you are most likely an expert on these. But you are still not sleeping.
I have written this book so that you can start sleeping well by using the most effective techniques for insomnia. These techniques go way beyond sleep hygiene. Together the techniques are called “cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia” or CBT-I.
