NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT!

CONQUER INSOMNIA AND DITCH THE SLEEP AIDS

A Hacking the Bodymind Series Event

I’ve tried everything under the sun, and nothing works. Can I expect results?

  • This group is for those who experience problems falling or staying asleep or who wish to reduce or eliminate sleep meds.
  • Based on CBT-I (cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia), an approach shown by Harvard and the University of Massachusetts Medical Schools to reduce or eliminate sleeping pills in 85-90% of patients.
  • CBT-I has been endorsed by the National Institutes of Health as an effective and preferred way to treat insomnia.
  • CBT-I is the only scientifically proven non-drug insomnia treatment. CBT-I significantly improves sleep in 75% of patients.
  • This group is structured with ongoing support so that you don’t just “try” the methods, but you implement them with skill. Doing the right things for the right amount of time (sticking with it!) in the right order for your particular sleep issue will make all the difference in the results you get.
  • Sometimes it takes expert support to help you find your path.

Five educational meetings and individualized support for creating your personal get-back-to-sleep plan.

Week 1: The Truth About Sleep–April 9

  • looking at research & correcting negative sleep thoughts while keeping a sleep diary to assess sleep

Week 2: Medication Withdrawal & Sleep Scheduling–April 16

  • education on how to strengthen the sleep system naturally through sleep scheduling and restriction and learning the facts about sleep medications starting med tapering techniques

Week 3: Stimulus Control–April 23

Next Steps:

  • Register with the button below
  • Free initial assessment—receive an intake questionnaire and complete a 30-minute intake call
  • If you’re going to be tapering sleep aids, consult with your doctor about the CBTi approach (you will receive a letter with talking points) and sign a disclosure statement before the second week of the group
  • Assuming the group is a fit after initial intake, classes start:
    April 9, 16, 23, May 7 and May 21, 9am-11am
  • Start by keeping a “30-second sleep diary” in week one and learning about sleep to shift negative sleep thoughts
  • Start restructuring sleep and seeing results as early as week 2 (some find week one alone starts shifting sleep!)
