Asch, Medical Officer, New Jersey discussed on Michael Wallace and Steve Scott


Unfortunately with all the things we're dealing with this but this coronavirus we're all going through collective trauma so we're seeing more and more of these vivid dreams and nightmares it's not uncommon to have sleep disruption and nightmares during trauma but would also is happening is some of those because we're not working our schedules are disrupted and we're we're sleeping in we're actually getting more sleep and you have more dreams right before you wake in in the morning so most of us are actually experiencing dreams for the first time so we're finding our dreams are more vivid because we just haven't had the opportunity to really get good quality sleep doctor Asch says social distancing is hiding or anxiety and disrupting our sleep because it affects our sense of self when you disrupt your sleep at night it activates the part of the brain for protection so you have to have a greater sense that your space is being violated you you really don't even want to be around people so it magnifies that sense of isolation and loss so it's not as bad as we think we're gonna get through this stick to the social distancing and we really can can cope it's the way the brain works it's giving them a cent per scene additional sense of loss and isolation Dr Carol ash sleep specialist and chief medical officer at RWJBarnabas health in New Jersey four forty eight at W.
