Dr. Aaron Beck discusses the use of behavioral experiments in cognitive therapy. He explains that behavioral experiments are more than just "getting the patient active".

"“The most common problem with chronic insomnia,” he says, “is people spending too much time awake in the bed.” Once you get past the head-slapping “duh” factor, the behavioral psychologist said, his statement really helps explain why people with chronic insomnia fail to get enough deep sleep.

Mindfulness therapy is used to break the chain of thoughts that depression/anxiety sufferers face which can catapult them toward a more substantial depressive episode. It then combines the well researched coping mechanisms that cognitive behavioral therapy can offer, thereby hopefully providing a robust self-help system
