The Truth About Sleep Insomnia

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that can make it hard to fall asleep, hard to stay asleep, or cause you to wake up too early and not be able to get back to sleep. You may still feel tired when you wake up. Insomnia can sap not only your energy level and mood but also your health, work performance and quality of life.

How is Sleep Insomnia Usually Treated?

  • Limiting or eliminating naps, especially late in the day
  • Restricting the use of alcohol, caffeine, and tobacco products in the evening
  • Avoiding late-night meals
  • Limiting screentime prior to bedtime
  • Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regularly during the day
  • Follow a consistent sleep schedule that includes the same bedtimes and wake-up times every day

Can Neurofeedback Help?

Research suggests that neurofeedback works by increasing sleep spindle density and stabilizing the part of the nervous system that regulates wakefulness, sleep and arousal.
