CBT the "gold standard" in dealing with insomnia


Yoga is good, CBT is better, for anxiety

A new study, published in Journal of the American Medical Association, and highlighted by the National Institutes of Health, compared 230 people in three groups: yoga, stress reduction, and CBT. They found that all three were effective in limiting the distress in General Anxiety Disorder (or GAD), with stress reduction instructions showing the smallest improvement, and CBT the largest, both immediately and over time. That latter part is important because it show-cases the long-lasting effects CBT has in reducing GAD’s symptoms.

Keep up with the yoga, but if you suffer from anxiety, be sure to explore CBT.
