Don't (limit or restrict) yourself

I was wondering if you could help me to fill in the following blank with the most appropriate choice:
--- You have to try not to……………yourself to studding only one type of references. You are a computer engineer and in my view you’d better know about some other related fields too; for example a programming or database and so on.
a) limit
b) restrict
[I have written this example myself]
[I think ether “limit” or “restrict” can be used; whereas I am sure that they have some nuances, but I cannot realize were I should not use the verb “restrict”; I think the verb “limit” is more general”]

    I agree that either "limit" or "restrict" work in your sentence. Both words mean roughly the same thing to me in this context.
