- Nightmares are intense, frightening dreams, often relating to events or experiences from life.
- I note that most sleep disorders stem from daily life – people who suffer with anxiety struggle to sleep because they think too much about what they are anxious about, if they have been anxious in the day this will repeat when they try to get to sleep.
- Sleep paralysis is when you cannot move or speak because there are still sleep hormones in your muscles – perhaps occurs when a dream has been interrupted, dream deprivation.
- Sleep problems are often caused by a poor sleep routine, a poor sleep environment, changes to sleep patterns, physical illness, stimulants, medication, stress, trauma, mental health problems – all relating to daily life!
