Better sleep without drugs

(KOMO News) Cognitive behavioral therapy has been shown to improve the amount of sleep you get and the quality of your sleep and to help limit the number of times you wake up at night.
Here’s how treatment usually works: You’ll be asked to keep a sleep diary along with rating your sleep and how you feel the next day. A therapist will review that information and suggest strategies to improve the amount and quality of sleep you’re getting. He or she will also help you change your daily routine to set your body’s wake-sleep cycle.
And because sleeping better makes you feel better during the day, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine says that cognitive behavioral therapy can significantly improve your overall well-being and quality of life.
