14. Work with a cognitive behavioral therapist
In a study at Laval University in Quebec, researches measured the effects of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia and found that insomnia practically disappeared among study participants.
Despite its intimidating name, cognitive behavioral therapy—or CBT—is simply learning new information about what keeps you from sleeping (the “cognitive” part) and learning how to manipulate your behaviour (the “behavioral” part) so that it doesn’t. It generally takes only four or five 30-minute sessions to effect change.
