Lying in bed for an extended period of time while awake can become a habit that eventually leads to poor sleep. Sleep restriction therapy, which is one of the most important behavioral interventions in CBT-I, shortens your time in bed. This increases your sleep drive, which is the force that causes you to fall asleep. In other words, sleep restriction increases the factors that cause you to sleep to outweigh the ones keeping you awake.
Sleep restriction aims to give you a taste of what it's like to sleep without overthinking it. You won't have to restrict your sleep forever, though. Once your sleep has improved, you can progressively increase the amount of time you spend in bed.
