Why do people talk in a dream

Why do people talk in their sleep? Medical science refers to somnilquia. Often, the phenomenon in question is found at the children's age stage, since at this age the morphological structures of the children's nervous system are at maximum stress. Adults face in a dream is extremely rare. At the same time, about 5% of adult inhabitants of the planet suffer from somnilocvia.

In childhood, young ladies are more likely to talk, and in the older period - a strong half. Conviction gives people a lot of trouble. After all, a person cannot control his own speech apparatus in the process of being in the possession of Morpheus; therefore, he can either offend loved ones or reveal personal secrets. In this case, speaking during daytime sleep is extremely rare.

What is saying

The term described implies speech activity appearing during nighttime sleep. The phenomenon under consideration is ranked as parasomnias — a group of disturbances caused by awakening problems, abnormalities in the transition from drowsiness to wakefulness, unintended motor activity, or a combination of the above manifestations. According to this classification, the sleeper speaks at the moment of replacing the state of sleep with wakefulness, with a number of authors classifying speaking as a violation arising in the fast phase. There is also a theory that somnilquia can be observed in the deep phase.

Such a divergence of views is due to the peculiarities of clinical manifestations. The asleep may speak the words indistinctly, mumble something slurred, mumble. With such symptoms, it is believed that the contraction is found in the slow stage. If a person pronounces words distinctly, pronounces whole phrases, then this indicates his being in a state of paradoxical sleep or in the stage of changing sleep with wakefulness.

Somnilquia episodes are single or reproducible throughout the duration of a sleeper’s stay in the Morpheus Kingdom.

In this case, there is not only calm speech, but also screaming, groans, which often scares loved ones. Characteristically, a person who suffers from speaking during a nap does not remember what is happening in the morning. On the nocturnal episode of somnilquia, he is usually informed by relatives.

Somnilquia often begins in the childhood period and reflects the specifics of the nervous system of babies. The prevalence of hypothesis among the adult population is significantly lower.

Night talkers often do not even know about their own "conversations." Often, people talking in a dream, their neighbors in their apartments or relatives make fun of them, which causes embarrassment to the night talkers. This sometimes provokes the emergence of fear of spending the night outside the house. Such people try to exclude night journeys, business trips and holidays with not very close people.

More often, people talk at night in a dream if they are tormented by nightmarish dreams or fears, suffer from sleepwalking, enuresis, and a deviation in eating behavior.

Reasons why people talk in their sleep

A number of scholars argue that the tendency to speak out often has hereditary roots. However, the nature of this phenomenon today is not fully known. Many are convinced that somnilkviyu generates stress, transferred the previous day. At the same time, such stress can carry a positive color, but must necessarily be accompanied by intense and intense emotion.

An individual who has received a portion of a powerful emotional charge on the eve, during a dream, centers located in the brain that are responsible for the function of speaking are excited, as a result, the language is “untied”, so to speak.

Today, scientists are faced with the problem of the ambiguity of the results of research - many diverse studies show different results. Some psychologists are convinced that the "talkers", while in the kingdom of Morpheus, repeat the remarks they uttered before drowsiness. Others claim that conversations in a dream are an imagination of consciousness. Some surveyors believe that individuals suffering from speaking out reproduce the events that occur to them in the process of dreams.

Why does a person speak aloud in a dream? The reasons for this may be of a physiological nature or be a consequence of the mode of existence.

The first subgroup is ranked:

- heredity;

- an active course of brain processes during naps (it is believed that when traveling through the Morpheus kingdom, brain cells must "rest", but it happens that the receptors remain "turned on" and continue to function, which causes a saying);

- the stage of speech formation (kids during sleep can pronounce new words that were heard during the day);

- accumulation of aggression within itself (often sleeping talkers can swear, shout, swing their arms, this means that the individual is under the influence of aggression accumulated in the wakefulness process, which finds a way out at night);

- heightened sensitivity (super-emotional individuals who survived a bright event during the day often pour out the transferred emotions at night through conversation);

- epilepsy (often people who have this ailment, chatting in a dream at the same time, when trying to wake up such people, an aggressive response may occur);

- mental disorders.

Sleeping babies can chat as a result of getting bright impressions during the day, rich sensations, for example, from visiting a circus, a zoo, and adults due to emotional clarification of relationships with colleagues or family members.

Often the occurrence of somnilquia is affected by the way of being of a person. Often the phenomenon under consideration is accompanied by:

- annoying events, such as: stuffiness, uncomfortable bed, sharp noisy sounds, watching horror before bedtime, these events cause restless rest, which provokes talking in a dream;

- stressors that overexcite the structure of the nervous system;

- lack of rest, expressed in physical overstrain or mental fatigue, as well as a lack of sleep cause dysfunction of the nervous system, manifested in speaking;

- the abuse of fatty foods before going to the territory of Morpheus;

- Intake of energy drinks containing caffeine (also causes the lack of adequate sleep, causes an increase in heart rate, restless sleep, this often leads to the fact that a person speaks in a dream in an incomprehensible language);

- illness (deterioration of health, generated by the disease, causes sleep disturbance, in addition, high fever can provoke delusions);

- use of pharmacopoeial drugs (treatment of diseases of the myocardium, respiratory system, regular lowering of pressure may cause side effects of sleep disorders);

- drug addiction.

Thus, speaking out can be the usual outburst of emotions accumulated during the day, but can also indicate the presence of serious mental abnormalities.

How to get rid of it

Somnologists are engaged in the therapy of the phenomenon under consideration. However, this profession is rarely satisfied, therefore, if an adult suffers with speaking, then first of all it is necessary to consult a doctor of therapeutic profile, and if a child is a pediatric one.

There is no cure for this problem today. Help is due to the cause of the somnilquia. If speaking is caused by the presence of any ailments, then it is necessary to treat them. If the sleeper is chatting while drowning, not due to illness, then a number of methods can be distinguished that will help eliminate the problem in question.

At first, it is recommended to try to minimize the daily effects of stressors, since the most common reason causing a disagreement is anxiety. That is why you should reduce the level of daily stress.

If it is not possible to completely eliminate stressors, then it is necessary to learn how to relax the mind and body. Here, yoga, massage, meditative techniques will be effective.

It is also recommended to give daily at least 15 minutes for exercise. Moderate physical activity helps to normalize the body and mind. An effective substitute for exercise is fast walking. The best time for walking is considered to be early morning or evening. A physical culture is better not to do before going to the kingdom of Morpheus.

Most of the daylight should be carried out in natural light. This will help the brain associate daylight with the waking mode, and darkness with the sleep mode. After fifteen days, vigor is observed in natural light and regular fatigue appears at night. The result is a relaxed and deep sleep, which reduces the likelihood of speaking.

You should also get rid of the habit of eating enough before going to the kingdom of Morpheus. If it is impossible to completely abandon the tasting of foods on the threshold of sleep, then its composition and quantity should be changed. In other words, it is recommended two to three hours before the expected time of going to bed to give up heavy fatty provisions.

You can not drink alcohol and caffeinated beverages in the evening. These drinks interfere with healthy sleep and normal sleep.

It is necessary to reduce the consumption in the evening of foods and drinks that have a high sugar content.

The above substances (caffeine, sugar) are the cause of wakefulness and untimely falling asleep or inappropriate sleepiness (alcohol).

In order not to suffer from insomnia and restless sleep, it is recommended that before setting off on the possession of Morpheus, to carry out a set of actions aimed at the maximum relaxation of the body. A great method to get rid of a conversation in a dream is relaxation in the form of a warm aroma bath. It also helps to relax listening to calm music, meditation, reading, hugging a loved one.

In other words, any action that helps a person achieve a relaxed state is appropriate here.

Adults need a daily seven or eight-hour sleep. In chronic sleep deprivation, it becomes more difficult for the body to regulate sleep stages, which causes problems with sleep and sleep, and somnilvia may also occur.

Constant lack of sleep increases the burden on the consciousness of the individual and his body. In addition, a steady lack of normal rest leads to an increase in the amount of time needed for the brain to fully recover. Therefore, annoying conversations in a dream often stop themselves immediately after a normal rest.
