Ask Daniel #53: To Navinder, Ben and Laura

Navinder has seen amazing results four days into starting a CBTi program. But so far he’s just been going to sleep whenever he’s felt like it and getting up whenever he wakes up. How important is it to have a set rise time?

Laura has been on the verge of asking her doctor for sleeping pills. I make a case for trying to avoid anything that either makes you frustrated because it “doesn’t work” or something that you think makes you sleep and erodes your sleep confidence.

Ben drops some great live questions including why “good sleepers” can sleep in when you should avoid this when working in your sleep.

Do you have trouble sleeping? Can’t sleep? Have questions about insomnia or sleep? Please leave a comment or send an email:
