Suffer from sleepwalking?
Sleepwalking is something that is not often talked about. Maybe it’s because it isn’t very common or maybe it’s because nobody really knows why it happens or what to do if they see someone doing it. Fortunately, we’ve done some digging and have some much needed answers.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, “Sleepwalking, formally known as somnambulism, is a behavior disorder that originates during deep sleep and results in walking or performing other complex behaviors while asleep. It is much more common in children than adults and is more likely to occur if a person is sleep deprived.” You may be effected by sleepwalking, whether now or as a child or you may even know someone who currently suffers from this disorder. Luckily, many of the triggers of sleepwalking are easily curable.
Some common triggers of sleepwalking include sleep deprivation, sedative agents, fever and certain medications. Getting enough sleep won’t only help your mood, but it can also stop your sleepwalking episodes and make you an overall happier person. If sleep deprivation isn’t the culprit of your sleepwalking, be sure to see your doctor or sleep specialist to rule out any illnesses or medications that could be causing this disorder.
