Behavioral medicine uses behavioral health techniques like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), relaxation, and mindfulness meditation to promote healthy behaviors and treat psychological symptoms that result from medical conditions.
Healthy behaviors (such as improved sleep quality) have been shown to prevent illness, reduce symptoms of chronic illness (such as lower blood pressure or decrease pain), increase relaxation and improve quality of life.
Successful behavior change begins with lifestyle changes such as a better diet, increased physical activity, and improved sleep. But making these changes can be difficult. Treatment can help.
