Challenge your self defeating thoughts about sleep!

It is not unusual for individuals who are at risk of insomnia or suffer from insomnia to develop self defeating thoughts such as the ones below:

Unrealistic expectations: I should be able to sleep well every night like a normal person. I shouldn’t have a problem!

Exaggeration: It’s the same every single night, another night of sleepless misery.

Catastrophizing: If I don’t get some sleep, I’ll tank my presentation and jeopardize my job.

Hopelessness: I’m never going to be able to sleep well. It’s out of my control.

Fortune telling: It’s going to take me at least an hour to get to sleep tonight. I just know it.

These thoughts must be challenged. Why? If they persist, then these thoughts will rob you of sleep.
