Have you noticed a rise in bad dreams lately? Are you scaring yourself awake in the middle of the night?\nYou know what's very likely the cause? The heat. You can officially add that to the growing list of why the heat sucks. And get ready for even more nightmares with this weekend's impending heatwave.\nAccording to Dr. Neil Stanley, ex-chairman of the British Sleep Society, sleeping in rooms with a temperature higher than 18°C can increase your chances of nightmares. I can't even remember the last time I slept in a room less than 25°C much less below 20°C\nAccording to Stanley, you need to lower your internal body temperature by 1°C for the best and deepest sleep. Our body sits at a pretty stable 37°C, but if you're sleeping in a warm room and can't cool down then your body can't get rid of the excess heat.\nView this post on Instagram What do you do when every single trick you know has absolutely no effect? . . . . . #cubed #cubedlol #funnycomic #webcomic #funnythoughts #comicartists #comicartwork #webcomic #funnystuff #webtoon #comicstrip #instacomic #comicstrips #humor😂 #funnycomics #comicpage #funnycomicstrips #comic #hahahaha #comix #brainhumor #comic #doodle #funny #comicstagram #cantsleep #sleepproblems A post shared by Cubed.lol (@cubed.lol) on Jul 19, 2019 at 6:56am PDT\nIf you're kicking off hot sheets or tossing and turning all night, this can lead to a sort of sleep-deprivation. And that, in turn, leads to greater 'sleep intensity', where you're more likely to enter the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep phase; when nightmares typically occur.\nBasically, your brain starts behaving like an overtired and hyperactive child with a really nasty imagination.\nREAD MORE: A New Papa John's Pizza Location Is Finally Coming To Quebec\nThe advice to 'keep your bedroom cool' is easier said than done for most of us Montrealers. Especially this July. But there are a couple of tricks to make sure you get the best sleep even if you don't have air-conditioning.\nView this post on Instagram Save me. The last two weeks my dreams have been absolute terrible. There have been nightmares scattered throughout, but it’s mainly awful, chaotic dreams with intense feelings. Like this morning after my fella got up, I had a dream I threw a big party and the next morning I couldn’t find my wedding/engagement rings. And I was completely freaked the F out. After these chaotic dreams, I wake up still feeling the feelings of the dream. . . . Also, I think I’ve been sleeping with my mouth open and snoring because of the dreams. I always feel like a dried husk when I wake up and my throat killing me. I downed 20oz right away this morning just trying to feel normal. Didn’t help. . . . I am on an anti-anxiety medication, but I’ve been out the last few days. I would think it had to do with that, but this started before I ran out. I don’t know why my brain is doing this. I am exhausted. Even if I lay down for a nap in the middle of the day, my brain doesn’t give the bad dreams a rest. I cannot escape. . . . Help me. What do y’all do to help you sleep? I am so exhausted. . . . #weightloss #fitforbaby #naturalweightloss #summertime #everydayimhufflin #hufflinpufflin #ijustwantsleep #sotired #exhausted #nightmares #helpme A post shared by Bowlful of Jelly (@bowlfulofjelly) on Jul 26, 2019 at 9:07am PDT\nStanley recommends avoiding eating late and ditching the booze altogether at least a few hours before you head to bed (Stanley sounds a little boring).\nWe've all had that feeling of passing out quickly only to wake up a few hours later once the alcohol has left our system.\nIf you're feeling really crazy you can put your sheets in the freezer for a couple of minutes before you crash or take a few icepacks, wrapped in a towel, to bed with you.\nBoth sound rather unpleasant... but so does that recurring dream of all my teeth rotting out.
