“Insomnia is a solvable problem,” says @ProfEspie at @UniofOxford To learn more on what we know about the causes of insomnia and how to treat it, read @d_a_robson's full feature: newscientist.com/article/233932…
But studies suggest these therapies are effective even when delivered through our smartphones, rather than by trained therapists @ProfEspie's app Sleepio provides a six-week CBTI course with an AI algorithm that helps tailor the app to patient behaviour newscientist.com/article/mg2563…
Mindfulness and behaviour therapy for insomnia (MBTI) is another rising star A shortage of therapists might prevent some people receiving these effective treatments
There are ways to make a difference, though One tried-and-tested solution is cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBTI)
It all sounds like common sense, but it may not be particularly effective A review published last year found that offering education about sleep hygiene as the sole intervention produces barely any improvement in symptoms
From the 1970s until fairly recently, one popular option was education on “sleep hygiene” This includes advice on making the bedroom as restful as possible, while avoiding activities such as drinking coffee in the afternoon or watching TV in bed
But an explosion in sleep research in recent years has helped to identify the neurological and mental processes behind it This deeper understanding means we have reached a turning point in its treatment
That may be a familiar feeling for many: insomnia is a common condition It’s also one that has far-reaching health and economic impacts. Yet, for decades, scientists have struggled to offer a good solution
Have you ever found it difficult to nod off? Where it feels like the more you try to create the right conditions for sleep, the more elusive it becomes newscientist.com/definition/sle…
