Understand your predicament. Sleep walking/talking are referred to as parasomnias. They are a category of sleep disorders in which abnormal events occur during sleep. occurs in about 15% of children. In this disorder the child is not aware of his actions. This is because of the poor development of the sleep/wake cycle. Areas of the brain that deal with mobility are active, while the areas that deal with cognition and awareness are sleeping, hence the child sleep walks/talks.
But in adults it could be associated with stress, anxiety or other sleep disorders. Sleep deprivation and stress are known to aggravate these symptoms. So, check to see if episodes of stress are triggering these events. Also, if you are alone and these events occur, you may not remember them in the morning. But if you have a bed partner, he is likely to remember.
Follow good sleep hygiene measures. Go to bed early almost at the same time every day, wake up at the same time, avoid smoking, alcohol, caffeinated beverages and exercise regularly. Try to reduce stress, this might reduce the occurrence of episodes.
