10 Of The Strangest Sleep Disorders

on .

Hi all thought I would share these with you if you have a think you may have a sleep disorder this might help you understand what it is so read on...

Sleep Cycle Interrupted

Normally when we sleep our brains are highly active while our bodies experience temporary paralysis. According to the National Sleep Foundation, REM behavior disorder blurs the lines between wakefulness,normal sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Sleepers with REM behavior disorder often act out their dreams in episodes that can be as mild as sleep talking or more extreme like hitting or punching...

Listed below are the names of these sleep disorders...

Sexsomnia (sleep sex)

Patients suffering from this condition perform sexual acts with their partners or themselves while asleep. Researchers documented cases that were as mild as making sexual sounds while sleeping and others that amounted to full-blown cases of violent sexual assault...

Other sleep disorders are often behind the unusual sleep behavior. In some instances clinics recommend counseling, psychotherapy or even anti depressants to manage the disorder...

Sleep Eating

Episodes usually involve high calorie foods (or other oddities like coffee grounds, cat food or cleaning products) eaten over a very short time and without the sleepers knowledge. Because sleep related eating is both a sleep disorder and eating disorder, the Mayo clinic points out the effects can be complex especially if the sleeper has other conditions like diabetes or food allergies.

The first signs of the condition often occur when the patients are in their 20's. Substance abuse withdrawal , medication side effects and separation anxiety can all trigger sleep eating...

Adult Bed Wetting

There are two types of adult bed wetting. Primary nocturnal enuresis happens when an adult never overcomes simple childhood bedwetting associated with potty training. The other is called adult onset enuresis which begins well in to adulthood.

The condition can be genetic, but a variety of factors, including diabetes can be at the root of the problem according to the Association of Continence. Increased production of urine during sleep or insufficient production of antidiuretic hormone (which normally inhibits nighttime urine production) can both lead to adult bedwetting...

Sleep Talking (somnilquy)

Ranging from snippets of gibberish to longer, sophisticated speeches, sleep talking can also be the symptom of another sleep disorder, such as REM behaviour disorder or sleep terrors. According to the National Sleep Foundation men and children are more likely to talk in their sleep than adult women...

Treatment isn't usually necessary , unless it's bothering your sleep partner. Maintaining a regular sleep schedule is more often than not the solution to mild cases or persistent sleep talking...

Sleepwalking (somanmbulism)

One of the more common types of parasomnia ( an unusual or undesirable sleep behaviour) sleepwalking often occurs as a symtom of another condition such as sleep apnea, sleep deprivation or as a side effect from a medication. The National Sleep Foundation says a sleepwalker will not be harmed if you wake them. However because it can be difficult to rouse a sleepwalker they recommend gently escorting him or her back to bed instead...

Night Terrors

Though extreme nightmare spells are common among young children, adults with alcohol problems, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety disorders or chronic stress are also susceptible. Night terrors also tend to run in families. Unlike children adults who experience night terrors more often remember fragments of their nightmares.

These intense nightmares are typically characterized by screaming, violent thrashing, sweating, heavy breathing and a racing pulse. In the grip of night terrors some adults will even get out of bed and frantically run around the room...


Though it may seem that way narcolepsy actually has nothing to do with a lack of sleep. The Mayo clinic concedes that the root cause of narcolepsy remains a mystery, but some doctors say genetics, infection and exposure to toxins may have something to do with it.

Sudden but brief attacks of sleep are the hallmark of narcolepsy, but other symptoms include extreme daytime drowisness, hallucinations, temporary paralysis and slurred speech...

Bruxism (teeth grinding)

Characterised by grinding or clenching of the teeth during sleep, bruxism is often taken very seriously because of it's potential to be caused by or lead to other medical problems. Physically, bruxism is often identified from the chronic facial pain or headaches it can cause.

The Mayo Clinic say it can also be the result of sleep apnea or chronic snoring. Dentists will frequently prescribe a protective mouth guard and a muscle relaxant to reduce the symptoms and prevent tooth damage...

Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless leg syndrome is characterised by the constant urge to move your legs when asleep or resting. Uncomfortable sensations such as tingling, itching or aching often occur in addition to restlessness interfering with a patients ability to get a good nights sleep.

Those suffering from the condition will involuntary jerk their limbs around, as the movement helps relieve the urge. Because of the serious sleep deprivation associated with the neurological disorder, many of those with restless leg syndrome are misdiagnosed with depression...

So there you have it the strangest sleep disorders I hope you enjoy the post and look forward to your comments...

Till later love, light and blessings...

Hi All

Today I continue with decluttering your home I am very pleased so many of you are enjoying this post so read on...

3 Containers Handy

As you work to remove things you no longer need keep 3 containers beside you: A laundry basket, a donation bag and a bag for rubbish/ recycling. Put things that belong elsewhere in the house in the laundry basket i.e. clothes, hairdryer etc. Donate as much as you can to charities and recycle or bin the rest...

Gather Like Things Together

If you don't know where to start work from left to right in the room or from top to bottom sorting things as you go. So gather all of your pens and pencils together, pile up all of your pairs of jeans together or place all of your cereals in a group depending in which room you are working. Don't stop to worry about whether you will keep an item or where you will put it. This will only slow down the process and overwhelm you...

Examine Your Groups

Now that all of your similar things are in one pile you can make decisions about them. Do you really need 20 pairs of black trousers? Some people keep trousers in so many different drawers and cupboards they have no idea they have so many pairs. Seeing them all together can be eye opening get rid of items that are not being used or are broken. Then narrow each pile down to your favourites.

We wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time which jeans do you actually wear? Which pens still work? Which items are you most likely to use? By the end of this winnowing you can get a group of 20 items down to a few...

Create Themes For Your Spaces

Assign a broad yet specific theme to every area of your space. If you are working in your kitchen, dedicate one shelf to breakfast foods, one to canned goods, one to grains and pasta's and one to baking supplies etc. Make sure that items are at a sensible height so that whoever spends most time in the kitchen can read the labels...

And there we have the continuation of decluttering there will be more post to follow on this subject so watch this space...

Simple Ways To Declutter Your Home - Part 3

on .

Maximise Your Space

Brainstrom various ways you can make the most of your space. Many kitchens and cupboards have adjustable shelving, if the cook cannot reach the pasta shelf make it lower. If your cupboard shelves are fixed buy some stackers. These are fireboard shelves that can give you more space. Canned goods tend to be short for example so you can create two layers with an additional shelf. Things that are used most often should get the prime real estate- the counter top of the lower shelves. If you are working on wardrobes you can also add shelves...

Get Things Off The Floor

Whenever possible keep things off the floor. This makes them easier to see and keeps the floor free of chaos. This is especially useful in the garage or garden shed, where you can hang rakes, garden implements, tools, shovels, sleds and other tools making them much easier to find...

Cure Your Flat Surface Disease

Many people are visual thinkers and like to have all of their things out where they can see them. The end result their tables, desks and countertops are covered with stacks of paperwork and other things. Fortunately its curable. After you've divided all of the clutter into piles of like things find homes for all of them. If piles of post are a problem find a container to put them in. When that container is full schedule time to go through it throwing away as much as you can...

Make Rainbows In Your Wardrobe

When organising your clothing hang all of your dresses together, with the lightest coloured ones on the left progressing to the darkest on the right. Do the same with your shirts, skirts, trousers and jackets. When you arrange them by colour within the category it is easy to see where the trousers end and the shirts begin...

Light Up Your Space

The rooms where people tend to pile up the most junk tend to be poorly lit. Dim lighting makes a room univiting and a good dumping ground. Warm over head lighting can make a room much more welcoming to people and hostile to junk...

Store Items Near Where You Will Use Them

In the kitchen keep things that you use everyday on lower shelves that easily accessible. Store items you use less frequently on the higher shelves or elsewhere. For example if you only use your turkey roasting tin once a year dont give it prime location in the kitchen. And if you don't drink coffee don't let a big coffee maker take up room on your counter, just because guests might drop by someday forget someday focus on now...

So there we have another 6 tips to decluttering and more to come I hope you are all enjoying these posts....

Hi All

Today I am giving you simple and easy tips to declutter your home you will also find these practical...

Make A Date With Your Clutter

We have such busy lives that we don't have time to declutter on a regular basis so the first thing to do is mark a day off on your calendar to begin organising. Take two hours that day and set it aside to start getting things in order...

Pick A Target

Look around your home and decide what overwhelms you the most. What frustrates you the most often? Is it your wardrobe? The kitchen cupboards or drawers? Or is it the stacks of papers on your office floor if you have one? Pick the area that is most maddening and start there, don't go anywhere else while you are working on that space...

Visualize The End Result

When most people decide to get organised their first impulse is to rush to the shop and buy containers. But that is putting the cart before the horse. The first thing you need to do is think about your goal. What would you like your space to look like? What function would you like it to serve?

Taking action to tackle your chaos is easier when you know where your headed. So hold off on the containers for now and work on your vision. Besides later on when you figure out what containers you need chances are you already have some in your home that can be repurposed...

Shred The Surplus

Go through your target space and remove everything that doesn't with your current needs, goals and lifestyle. Don't keep things that might be useful someday, only things that are useful to you today. Be honest with yourself. Do you use this item? Do you need it? Or do you love it? Those are the only three reasons to keep something.

Just because someone else decides to give you something doesn't mean you have to keep it. If you are keeping it out of loyalty you are doing yourself a disservice and a disservice to the person who gave you it by not using it so give it to someone who will...

So there you have it the first 4 simple ways to begin decluttering I hope you find them useful and will be adding more tomorrow...
