Sleep without rest or sleep disorders, known as parasomnia, do not pose a serious health problem, but the rest undermine and disrupt daily life 

”Sleep and forget to turn off.” Most citizens in the sleep balm on a day filled with stress, family arguments or concerns about how to get to the end of the month. But while everyone slept, not all rest in the same way. The brain is still active, though without conscience, to repair fatigue and organize all the information received. This allows the nervous system comes into operation to ensure the physical and mental rest, so sleep and wakefulness are complementary and are regarded as two sides of the same unit.

However, there are people-especially children-who suffer disruptions in any of the stages which consists of sleep, with no rest in appropriate fashion and are affected by a temporary sleepwalking, sleep paralysis or disorders swinging. 


What about Dreaming

The dream is organized in phases that appear on a continuous basis and fulfill specific functions. The first, the slow-wave sleep or non-REM, is divided into four stages to allow the dream is becoming deeper. In this process, which lasted for about 90 minutes, lowers the heart rate and breathing, while there is a sensory isolation that provides the physical rest for energy recovery. 

The second phase is called REM sleep or rapid eye movements. In his 90 minutes, the brain activity logs almost as much as during the vigil, as it is the stage where stem the dreams and nightmares. But instead of collecting information from the outside world, the brain takes into account only the information generated by itself, as an attempt to organize and consolidate learning and memory.

During the eight hours that should last the dream happen alternately described the two phases, so that switches deep sleep and less deep about three or four times each. The episodes lived in the dreams of the last phase REM will be remembered more easily because of its proximity to a wake. 
Sleepwalking 

Among the sleep disorders that a person may experience at any age, the most common is sleepwalking, an alteration with greater prevalence in children and that decreases over the years. It is not considered a serious illness and generally does not cause health problems.

In addition, disappears by itself, so it does not require specific treatment unless it is given too often. 

Faced with an episode of sleepwalking, the most surprising thing is that the person concerned is still asleep, but is able to get out of bed and perform some simple task. The rest of the family already knows that the sleepwalker is lifted from the bed with his eyes open, disoriented and that their movements are erratic. It is also aware that try to awaken those who are in this state may take a few minutes, since the disorder develops in the deepest sleep phase. Although popular belief maintains that it is dangerous to wake a person Sonambula, the scientific evidence confirms that it is not harmful to health. However, experts say that the best recommendation is to indicate to the person Sonambula a series of simple to understand and to facilitate the return to bed to continue sleeping safely. 


To this end, it is preferable that another person accompanying him into the room and use reassuring words, without resorting to drastic expressions or complaint, as “enough is enough”, “Like every day,” and so on. If this goal is achieved, it is normal that the next day not remember anything, so little cash will insist on what happened. This is very important during childhood, a period during which these cases should be treated with the utmost delicacy, without recriminations or attempts to convince that this will not happen again. However, in order to prevent any accident, the windows of the house should be closed during sleeping hours and monitored those objects that can cause physical harm. 



Other routine practice, especially children, continue to go through good habits and regular sleep schedule stable. Hours adequate sleep (about eight) with minimal alterations facilitates the rest of the smallest, and reduces the likelihood of developing more episodes.
