Sleep Talking – 4 Common Causes and 6 Ways to Stop Them
Sleep talking is not rare for people, which might be more common among children with neurosis and neurological instability.
The content of sleep talking is often similar to usual thinking, most of which is what you think about during the day. Sleep talking is not a stalemate and this article will help you to end it!
According to research, falling asleep does not mean that the brain will totally rest. By contrast, some parts of it might become more active.
After falling asleep, people will enter a light sleep period (dreaming during this time) and a deep sleep period (eyeball movement slows down). These two sleep periods form a cycle.
The first cycle time is always short while the second cycle time is longer. In the deep sleep period of the third cycle, there may be sleepwalking or sleep talking.
When a person does not sleep deeply, the nerve cells are still active, and people will have dreams. If the nerve cells responsible for speech are still in a state of excitement, they will direct people to speak. A dream talk occurs.
The expression of dream talk is very inconsistent.
It can be just the silent movement of the lips or some murmurs.
It can be a few words with unclear articulation and weird tones, or fluent speech and singing with perfect vocalization and grammar. It can also be laughing, crying, lamenting, moaning, cheering, roaring, etc.
The above methods are to treat the symptoms but not the cause. The most important thing is to learn how to relax and regulate mental stress in daily life, which will help to improve the quality of sleep and reduce sleep talking.
