In episode 4 of the Sleep On It podcast, I talk about how getting better at perceiving your sleep can be improved, how that leads to better sleep and less insomnia. The best way to do this is by using a collection of strategies designed to change behaviors, habits and thinking patterns about sleep called Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I). The most supported of all the CBT-I strategies is called Stimulus Control: making the association between the bed and sleep stronger (think Pavlov’s dogs, but without the drooling). Enjoy!

I slept great the last two nights! I shut off the computer a little after nine and read. Then I dont even think about going to bed until my eyelids are heavy. I feel really hopeful now for the first time in a long time!
