Is Lack of Sleep Affecting Your Performance?

 

Do you wake up in the morning feeling tired? Or have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting back to sleep? You may have insomnia. An estimated 60 million American's have trouble sleeping, impairing their daily functioning.

Sleep medication has become a common solution for much-needed sleep, but at a cost -- sleep is not as restful, and the medication's effectiveness diminishes over time, requiring more to get you to sleep. Studies show that those taking sleep medication get only 11 minutes more sleep, on average, than those not taking sleep medication, and, chronic use can cause daytime sleepiness, reduced concentration, irritability and anxiety.

What is CBT-I?


CBT-I, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, is an evidence-based, drug-free program to overcome insomnia. It works by identifying and addressing the underlying factors causing insomnia. CBT-I helps people become aware of counterproductive thoughts, behaviors and habits they've developed, usually over a long period of time, that are contributing to, exacerbating, or causing their sleep trouble; these factors are learned and can be unlearned. CBT-I is highly effective for increasing total sleep time and reducing or eliminating sleep medication.

Based on science, proven in practice.


(CBT-I) is considered the first line of treatment for insomnia. It’s successful because it addresses the underlying cause of most sleep problems, thoughts and behaviors. Through discovery and practice you can successfully reboot your ability to sleep for a long-term, drug-free solution to insomnia.

The program was developed by Dr. Gregg Jacobs based on his 30 years of extensive research and clinical practice at Harvard Medical School and the University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center involving over ten thousand insomnia patients.

Studies consistently show CBT-I to be more effective than sleeping pills.


Get back to sleep without medication.


Sleeping pills are widely used but not intended to be a daily, long-term solution for insomnia. In studies and in practice, CBT-I has demonstrated long-term success treating insomnia. CBT-I has been endorsed by the National Institutes of Health as an effective and preferred method for treating insomnia. CBT-I achieves these results because it addresses the underlying causes of insomnia, thoughts and behaviors, which are learned and can be unlearned.

Research on CBT-I shows the following: 

*    75% of insomnia patients experience significantly improved sleep

*    The majority become normal sleepers

*    85- 90% reduce or eliminate sleeping pills

*    CBT is more effective than sleeping pills

Our results suggest CBT-I should now be considered the first line treatment for insomnia, which is experienced on a nightly basis by one-third of the nation’s adult population.
