Do you ever talk to yourself while you're sleeping? Have you ever been told that you talk to yourself in your sleep? Or perhaps you were awakened by someone speaking in gibberish?
Sleep talking is a sleep disorder in which someone talks in a different voice or language, speaks in full sentences, or even speaks gibberish while asleep. The sleep talker is usually unaware of what is going on and has little recollection of it the next day. Stress and a lack of sleep are two of the most common causes of sleep talking. It is critical to practice proper sleep hygiene regularly if you want to learn how to stop sleep talking. Some of the most effective ways to stop sleep talking are listed below.
Maintain a Sleep Journal
Keep a sleep diary to track your sleeping patterns to determine what is causing you to talk in your sleep. Take note of when you go to bed when you wake up, any medications you've taken, whether or not you drank caffeine or alcohol that day, and when you exercised. Do this for two weeks to see if any patterns emerge.
Check to See If You're Getting Enough Sleep
One of the most common reasons people talk in their sleep is a lack of sleep. If you sleep talk and don't get the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep per night, you should reconsider your sleep schedule. Do you stay up too late? Are you getting up too early? Starting slowly is one of the best ways to improve your sleep schedule. Adjust your schedule in 15-minute increments until you achieve your desired bedtime and wake-up time. If you have trouble waking up in the morning, expose yourself to sunlight as soon as possible.
Caffeine and Alcohol Consumption Should Be Kept to a Minimum
Not only is it bad for your sleep quality to consume alcohol and caffeine right before bed, but alcohol can also increase your chances of sleep talking. Caffeinated beverages act as a stimulant, making them difficult to sleep. Alcohol can cause you to wake up several times during the night, making it difficult to fall back asleep. This can make you drowsy and sleep-deprived the next day, increasing your chances of sleep talking the next night.
Consume Light and Healthy Foods
Heavy meals high in refined carbohydrates can increase your chances of developing insomnia. Refined carbohydrates, such as white bread, sodas, and cakes, can cause a rapid spike in blood sugar, which may be the cause of insomnia. Because sleep deprivation is a cause of sleep talking, if you want to stop sleep talking, eat light and healthy meals before bed. Choose meals that are high in protein, vegetables, and healthy fats. Fish, turkey, sweet potatoes, and lettuce are all high in nutrients and can help you sleep. Eating food right before bed can also harm your sleep quality and disrupt your sleeping patterns. Eat your last meal at least three hours before you normally go to bed.
