Ditch insomnia in as little as 4 weeks with this 6-step therapeutic program for better sleep.
Insomnia looks different for everyone. Whether it’s caused by stress, a traumatic life event, or even a snoring partner, poor sleep can affect the quality of your waking life. But Dr. Pedram Navab wants readers to know that it’s not a lost cause—falling asleep can be just as easy as waking up. With his cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT-I) program, paired with relatable case studies of different sleep disorders, readers are guided to new and improved sleep in as little as 4 weeks.
In Sleep Reimagined, the 6-step CBT-I program teaches readers how to understand sleep, rewire their arousal system through therapeutic relaxation, practice sleep restriction and stimulus control, restructure attitudes towards sleep, use mindfulness intervention to continue cognitive components, and prevent insomnia relapse through planning. Both comprehensive and entertaining, this book is the perfect bedside companion to discover better sleep and better life.

Dr. Navab has taken an engaging and unique approach in Sleep Reimagined to help reinforce the importance of sleep and to make treatment interventions feel both personalized and hopeful. . . . While sleep treatment is very effective, it is not ‘one size fits all’ as many other self-help books suggest. Dr. Navab has nailed it, and I am sure this will be beneficial to many people coping with insomnia and other sleep disorders.
