80-90% Of People Experience Nightmares!
A nightmare is an unpleasant dream that could be detrimental to your quality of sleep. Within this blog, we will look to shed light on this twilight torment in order to help you achieve a great night’s sleep.
WebMD describe nightmares as “vividly realistic, disturbing dreams that rattle you awake from a deep sleep”. Nightmares usually take place during REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, with the details of the nightmare varying from person to person, from monsters to Monday mornings…
There are numerous triggers that can induce nightmares; for example, prescription and recreational drugs, previous lifetime trauma, even late night snacks are considered to be nightmare fuel. Sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, have been labelled as contributing to the inception of nightmares. Although not completely confirmed, sleep deprivation has also been referenced when discussing what causes nightmares.
So just how do you combat nightmares?
The risk of nightmares brought on by medication can be minimised by speaking with your doctor, who will be able to advise on and help you change your dosage. Addressing any of the underlying problems resulting in a sleep disorder is also a good way of limiting these bad dreams. For nightmares that are caused by other factors than medication and sleep disorders, WebMD cites other methods for reducing the risk of nightmares such as behavioural changes and therapies, maintaining a constant sleep schedule, and regular exercise to relieve any stress or anxiety.
One of the key ways of limiting nighttime terrors is to make sure that you have created the best and most hygienic sleeping environment possible. You must also ensure you are reducing the amount of noise and light in the bedroom as much as possible, as well as reducing your use of technology before you go to sleep.
