Who doesn’t love a good horror flick? Whether it’s in celebration of the year’s spookiest holiday or just a fun twist for movie night, a scary movie can be great entertainment. But sleeping afterward is a whole other story. If your mind is still agitated from a suspenseful film, you may find yourself plagued by restlessness or bad dreams.
To help your mind settle, don’t go straight to bed after a scary movie. Instead, plan for about an hour afterwards to relax, unwind, and distract yourself. This will help you sleep more soundly and not dwell on the night’s frights.
