Episode 350: Trouble Sleeping: Spend less time in Bed?

In episode 350, Mike and James talk about the evidence around sleep restriction. The evidence is fairly solid and the results typically suggest an impact greater than sleeping pills with sleep restriction improving sleep for one in every two to six patients compared to sleep hygiene alone.  At the end of the podcast, James realises that Mike presented the evidence while being fast asleep – showing that the concept of sleep restriction actually works.
