Sleep is food for the brain—especially for teens. Based on the most current sleep science and evidence-based cognitive and behavioral interventions to improve sleep, The Insomnia Workbook for Teens helps teens change their sleep habits so that they can feel more alert and ready to face life's challenges.

If you're like many other teens, you probably aren't getting enough sleep. And is it any wonder? Between early school start times, social media, electronic devices, extracurricular activities, and late-night homework—teens are at the highest risk of any age group for sleep deprivation. And in the long run, insomnia can lead to a host of health and mental health issues—including diabetes and depression. So, how can you cultivate a healthy sleep routine, so you can be your best?

The Insomnia Workbook for Teens offers proven-effective tips and strategies to help you get to sleep and stay asleep. You'll learn about the different reasons you may experience insomnia, target your own "sleep disrupters" like caffeine and sugar, and discover skills for managing these disrupters so you can stop feeling drowsy and grumpy every day.

It's hard being a teen in today's fast-paced world. And it's even harder to reach your goals when you're feeling tired and run-down. Based on up-to-the-minute science, this workbook will give you real solutions for overcoming insomnia and getting those much-needed zzzs.
