  • Sleep restriction – only allowing yourself to be in bed for the amount of time you sleep on average until you build up
  • Sleep intervention (?) – getting out of bed and leaving the room when you can’t sleep after 20 minutes
  • Willingness is key (willingness to try techniques, willingness to sleep)
