It’s no coincidence that 2/3 of my clients are women. Though I work with many men to get their sleep back on track, insomnia is more common in women. There are numerous possible factors: hormonal changes such as pregnancy and menopause, multiple roles and caregiving responsibilities from motherhood to eldercare.
Like many of my clients, my own insomnia began following the birth of my child. After months of getting up in the night, my child eventually started sleeping through the night. But my sleep never went back to normal. At least, not until I finally discovered CBT-I a couple decades later. Learning how sleep regulation systems work, how they can become disrupted leading to a long-term problem with insomnia, and most importantly the strategies to help reverse the vicious cycle is key to recovering from insomnia. The good news is: it’s never too late. In fact, I often find that the longer someone has been struggling with insomnia, the more improvement they have with CBT-I.
Stop wasting your life and learn how to sleep well again. Begin your recovery today.
You can get back your quality of life!
Happy IWD everyone!
