The Body Often Shakes When Suddenly Going To Sleep Or Wake Up?
I want to ask, sometimes every time I want to sleep or want to wake up, why do I sometimes my body suddenly feels surprised, but only shocked once and then I realized, and how to overcome it, thank you in advance
Hello Oldi, thank you for asking.
Sleep has 2 stages, namely REM (rapid eye movement) and NREM (non rapid eye movement) stages. In healthy adults, sleep generally begins with a REM period during NREM for several minutes. The NREM period is further divided into stages. In this period people generally do not feel dreams because brain activity is very minimal. After that people will enter the REM period, where brain activity is slightly increased so that dreams can arise. During this period, the muscles of the body become 'paralyzed', therefore an event can occur where a person feels awakened but cannot move. Changes in the REM and NREM periods occur several times during sleep.
If there is a shock before going to sleep and wake up, because of the possibility you are in the REM stage. At this stage brain activity is usually sufficient enough to cause people to wake up suddenly. The quality of one's sleep depends on physical conditions, psychological conditions, environmental conditions of a person. Sleep quality also depends on one's sleep patterns. People with monophasic sleep patterns only sleep once at night, biphasic sleep patterns require sleep day and night, whereas polyphasics need sleep several times a day.
You can practice relaxation methods before and after sleep to calm your physical and psychological health. Don't exercise or strenuous physical activity too close to bedtime. Keep the light, sound and other environmental factors in an optimal atmosphere. If your sleep becomes very disturbed due to frequent shock, you can consult with a psychologist to practice good sleep.
Hope this answer helps you. Regards.
