    ✘ Not a client

    Currently started a new job and my insomnia is through the roof as I am stuck in the constant loop of sleeplessness and anxiety. Currently trying to use sleep restriction theory and avoid sleeping pills but my insomnia has only been increased. I did just start a few days ago.


    ✘ Not a client

    It is normal for periods of life change, and routine to increase our alertness. The body likes routine. What is predictable. Any change awakens us. So this should settle down. It’s just getting used to the brain. But it’s important to do the basics so this doesn’t perpetuate itself. That is: Sleeping with a fixed sleep window. Keep a fixed bedtime and wake up schedule. Just go to bed when you’re falling asleep. Do not take naps and especially forget about this subject. Do not value these passing difficulties. RS works but you have to give your body and brain some time to get used to it. In my case, I only had results after 3 weeks. The meds will only increase your lack of confidence that your body will recover. This is a very painful path. Give it up while there is still time. Have faith in CBTi, the only way to beat insomnia. Good luck!
