Hi there .
I am sorry to hear this, do you drink tea at night ?
I use to get terrible nightmares if I drank camomile tea in the evening it is suppose to calm your mind and help relax you but it has just the opposite effect on me .
Perhaps talking with a therapist could help . Also , some meds can trigger strange dreams .
good luck and let us know if you find a solution .
Good luck finding a solution
@Birding_babe So glad you haven't had a nightmare in a while! That is so scary, 100% with you I'd rather wake up than sleep through them. Melatonin feels like chaotic sleep haha, so its not my favorite go-to.
Also want to tag our Sleep Guide @Jamilia_B to see if she has any words of advice! Hoping for more peaceful nights of sleep 🙏
You have my sympathies. I have nightmares periodically too. I find it helps not to eat and drink anything except water for two or three hours before bed. Also to keep my bedroom fairly cool. A regular sleep routine helps, too, with time for winding down, journaling etc. I also endeavour to see what the dreams symbolise; I find the perspective of seeing everyone/everything in the dream as an aspect of oneself helpful, too. Good luck!
