    CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
    igram12 posted:
    I have issues falling asleep. I found an article by Insomnia Specialist Dr. Gregg Jacobs, and it really helped me. He preaches CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Little changes to your daily routine have a huge effect on your sleep patterns. I learned to only use my bed for sleep. Doing work in bed for example trains the brain to stay awake rather than fall asleep.

    It helped, but I soon fell into bad habits again. I recently found a 5 week program by Dr.Gregg Jacobs which really helped me. Having a program kept me disciplined, and it has so many great tips. I am sleeping much more regularly now. I would highly recommend it!
