    Have suffered with insomnia for years. Have tried all the usual things e.g, cool bedroom, turn off all mobiles etc., stretching excercises – you name it I’ve tried it. I can go all night without any sleep and have bad headaches as a result. I have to give in and take over the counter sleeping tablets (Dormidina). I would love to just fall into sleep like most people

    Hi Galesa,

    Sleep hygiene alone probably won’t be very beneficial for chronic insomnia. If you implement a sleep hygiene tactic and it doesn’t work, then you begin to have more anxiety about your sleep.
    In addition, sometimes we implement sleep hygiene as sleep strategies and that also highlights the sleep issue you’re experiencing. On the other hand, CBT-I techniques are helpful because they address the thoughts and behaviors that perpetuate your sleep disruption and that’s something sleep hygiene can’t do by itself. What do you think is causing you not to fall asleep?
