Living with insomnia is literally, exhausting

If you’ve ever found yourself lying awake in bed at night staring at the ceiling struggling to drift off to sleep then you’ve come to the right place. We understand the feelings of frustration, stress, and pure exhaustion that come with insomnia symptoms.

It’s not just the sleepless nights; it’s the constant worry about getting enough rest, it’s that sinking sensation in your stomach as you watch the minutes pass by and it’s knowing tomorrow will bring another battle with overwhelming fatigue.

You don’t have to suffer anymore.

What Is Insomnia?

Picture this: you’re completely exhausted, but as soon as you settle into bed, you feel wide awake. It’s like your brain got a second wind and you can’t settle down. Your mind is filled with worries and random thoughts. No matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to fall asleep. This is the reality for people dealing with insomnia.

Insomnia symptoms can show up in different ways, leaving you feeling like you’re always running on empty. Nighttime offers no relief either. For some, falling asleep can be a huge challenge and each hour that passes only adds to the frustration and anxiety of not being able to drift off into dreamland. For others, even when sleep finally comes, it’s often interrupted by restless tossing and turning; sometimes even lying awake in the middle of the night for hours on end. Some wake up long before their alarm clock and no matter how hard they try they cannot fall back asleep; finding themselves drinking their first cup of coffee hours before they intended to.

Stress and worry become your unwelcome companions, invading your thoughts around the clock. You can’t stop thinking about why sleep seems so effortless for others while feeling like it’s an impossible feat for yourself. It’s as if sleep, or lack thereof, becomes an obsession. Your bed, rather than being a sanctuary for rest, becomes a chamber of stress and worry.

If you find yourself nodding in agreement, thinking that getting a good night’s sleep shouldn’t be such a challenge or that it shouldn’t be so difficult to relax during the day or unwind at night, know that you’re not alone. Dealing with insomnia can feel like a constant struggle, but recognizing the signs of insomnia is the first step toward regaining peaceful nights and energized days.

How do I know if I have Insomnia?

Everyone can have a bad night’s sleep every once in a while. The night before a presentation, a job interview or an early flight can make sleep difficult for many people.

When you have clinical insomnia, you struggle with sleep night after night and can’t seem to get back into a normal sleep pattern. You feel like you are so tired that you can hardly get through the day, yet night comes and offers no relief. Insomnia can take many different forms.

Listed below are some common symptoms that individuals with insomnia may struggle with:

How Insomnia Therapy can help

Unlike other types of therapy, CBT-i offers an individualized approach to tracking and improving sleep. CBT-i acts as a toolkit packed with methods and strategies aimed at helping you get a good night’s sleep. Using tools to track your sleep, CBT-i uncovers the underlying causes of your insomnia; empowering you to cultivate better sleep practices for the long term.

CBT-i can help you by examining the thoughts and behaviors disrupting your sleep. Collaborating with a therapist you’ll uncover patterns, triggers, and beliefs related to sleep pinpointing any routines that might be hindering your ability to drift off.
Have you ever found yourself lying awake in bed worrying about not falling asleep? Engaging in CBT-i involves challenging thoughts and replacing them with balanced and realistic perspectives. By shifting your mindset you can alleviate the anxiety and concerns often linked to insomnia leading to a night’s sleep.
When people think of sleep hygiene they are often reminded of the sage advice to limit screen time and create consistent routines. CBT-i goes beyond common wisdom and dives deeper into sleep strategies that might make the most sense for you and your lifestyle. Through CBT-i you will gain insights on creating a sleep setting that will help you drift off and make sleep less effortful. These simple changes can significantly enhance your sleep quality.
It’s like the second your head hits the pillow all of these random thoughts and worries start swirling around in your mind. Maybe it’s your to-do list or an important meeting you have, or maybe it’s just your brain telling you that you won’t be able to sleep. Regardless, CBT-i focuses on strategies such as mindfulness, progressive muscle relaxation, visualization, and other strategies to help you feel relaxed so that you can blissfully fall asleep without the noise and distractions of your daily worries.
The main goal of CBT-i is to help regulate your sleep cycles so your sleep is restful and predictable. By modifying your sleeping schedule and strengthening the connection between bed and rest, you can train your body to fall asleep faster and stay asleep throughout the night. With enough practice, your brain will start to run on autopilot and you will no longer have to worry about getting a good night’s sleep.
The beauty of CBT-i is that it can be completely individualized to your particular sleep patterns and needs. Through the use of sleep diaries, you and the therapist can assess your current sleep patterns and make adjustments as necessary. This is much more than the general sleep advice that you may get through a Google search. Your therapist will make specific recommendations based on your body’s response to the treatment. This way the therapist can impact what is happening both during the session and outside of the session as well.

Questions About Insomnia Therapy

Insomnia is usually caused by a number of factors. You may describe yourself as a “light sleeper” or acknowledge that you have struggled with sleep in the past. You may have relatives, such as parents or siblings, who also struggle with sleep. Often a stressful or major life event will cause disruptions in your sleep. However, even after that event is over, your sleep problems persist. The common sense strategies you might be using to help resolve your sleep problems are exactly what keeps them going. You may have developed habits that are intended to increase the amount of sleep you are getting, but in turn, they actually perpetuating sleep problems. With the help of a trusted therapist trained in CBT-i you can resolve your sleep difficulties and move on with your life.
Your therapist will work with you to determine a comfortable pace of treatment and sessions can be modified as needed. Your therapist will be there alongside you supporting you through any difficulties you experience. Even modified versions of CBT-i have been proven to work for improving sleep. It just depends on your level of comfort and how quickly you want to see improvements.
No, your therapist will never force you to do anything you do not want to do. They can give recommendations and encouragement but ultimately you get the final say in treatment decisions. Sleep restriction is a confusing and misleading term. You will not actually be restricting your sleep. You will be restricting the time you spend in bed not sleeping. The goal of this intervention is to enhance the relationship between your bed and sleep so that ultimately your sleep will be more restful and consistent.
When you first make adjustments to your sleep schedule it is possible that there will be a short and temporary disruption to your sleep. With consistency, this disruption should dissipate and be gone completely at the end of one to two weeks at the most. Most people start to see improvements in their sleep quality rather quickly with this treatment, and only need a handful of sessions to reap the benefits.
CBT-i is over 80% effective in treating insomnia and is considered the frontline treatment for this disorder. It has been studied over many years and across a number of conditions such as TBI, PTSD, etc. with consistent positive results in improving sleep duration and quality. With the help of your therapist, you will start seeing improvements quickly and look forward to getting a good night’s sleep.
