What Is Sleep Restriction Therapy

Some individuals have a tendency to spend too much time in bed, often to make up for a "bad night of sleep." Spending too much time in bed will typically exacerbate the difficulty consolidating sleep at night and lead to a worsening of the insomnia. Sleep restriction therapy restricts the time spent in bed to approximate the actual total sleep need, leading to a short-term sleep deprivation, but helping "train the brain" to consolidate sleep at night.
