Sleep is an important part of your overall health. Good sleep improves your health, mood, and focus. It helps your body repair itself and helps you to function normally throughout the day. Not getting enough sleep can lead to serious health conditions including high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and obesity. To learn more about how sleep can affect these conditions, click here.

How can I get better sleep?

Having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-i), is an effective and proven way to help improve your sleep. Some (CBT-i) medication-free strategies include:

  • stimulus control and sleep hygiene for better sleep
  • sleep restriction to improve your sleep efficiency
  • relaxation techniques to improve your sleep
  • managing stress and anxiety thoughts that may affect our sleep
Please note that CBT-i does not address underlying medical conditions that may affect your sleep, such as sleep apnea.
