Poor sleep doesn’t just make you feel bad the next day. People with chronic sleep troubles also have a greater risk of developing other problems, like heart attacks and strokes. Don’t feel like you have to live with chronic difficulty sleeping. Your first step should be to discuss your insomnia with your doctor. You may have an undiagnosed sleep disorder, like sleep apnea, which causes its sufferers to snore and wake frequently throughout the night. Some physicians may recommend sleep medication if you have trouble falling or staying asleep, but medication is not the only solution. At Cleveland Clinic Wellness, we believe in longer-lasting solutions that don’t require a nightly pill. Research suggests that cognitive-behavioral therapy that teaches patients to adjust sleep-related habits and attitudes can be a highly effective long-term treatment for insomnia. Our Go! to Sleep
six-week online program applies treatment strategies similar to those used at top sleep clinics across the nation.
