Sleep paralysis is a phenomenon when someone experiences, either when they’re falling asleep or awakening, not being able to speak, move, or react for a brief amount of time. It is feeling like your paralyzed which is why it’s called sleep paralysis.

It’s basically when your brain is awake or is having vivid dreams and your body is “asleep”. It happens to 25% of people at least once in their lives but it isn’t dangerous, just scary. Here are somethings you can do to “wake” yourself up from it or make it less scary:

Don’t Sleep On Your Back:

When you sleep on your back, it is way easier to get sleep paralysis. I used to get sleep paralysis a lot for a while up until last year when I read I should prevent sleeping on my back. I sleep on my stomach now and it really helps because I don’t get them anymore.

No More Heavy Meals Before Bed & Drink Tea or Milk:

Heavy meals that contain protein, sugar or fat have affect your sleep and cause sleep paralysis. Also drinking tea or a glass of milk before bed relaxes your body which you should do before going to bed. The most recommended teas are chamomile, lemon balm, passion flower. Or if you’re more of a milk person, you should drink warm milk.

Turn Off Electronics:

If you’re the type of person to fall asleep with your TV on or anything like music playing during your sleep, you have a greater chance of getting sleep paralysis. It’s better to turn everything off before going to bed. Plus, turning off electronics prevent electric shortages and house fires. Image result for electronics off

Try To Get More Sleep:

Of course sleep more helps prevent sleep paralysis. Try going to sleep early or even take a short nap. Related image
