Stop Having Nightmares
Dreams can be fun, but not if they quickly turn into nightmares. Here's all you need to know to stop having those scary nightmares!t

Steps

  1. 1
    Find a happy place.
     Find a happy place.
    Find a happy place. You don't need to literally surfthe globe, and find a happy place. You can make one up, or base it on a nice place you've been to. No matter what or where it is, just make sure it's calm and relaxing. Also make sure that you don't tell anyone who you don't want appearing there where it is, or else they'll appear in your dream and mess things up. To better visualize your happy place in your dreams, draw a picture.

  2. 2
    Think happy thoughts.
     Think happy thoughts.
    Think happy thoughts. Right before bed, think of extremely happy and nice things happening to you, like flying in the clouds. You should also imagine yourself in your happy place having fun. As soon as something bad begins happening, force yourselfawake. Soon, the bad thoughts will disappear.
  3. 3
    Talk to someone about your dreams.
     Talk to someone about your dreams.
    Talk to someone about your dreams. Find someone who you trust, and explain your dreams. Also explain to them why they scare you. Just letting your feelings out makes things better. You can write this in a Dream Journal, but be aware that sometimes it helps to explain it to someone who you know is listening. Some people can get away with talking to a scarecrow, while others need someone who deeplyunderstands the topic and gives feedback. See what works for you, and regularly explain your nightmares to this person. After a while, they should go away.

    Attempt to manipulate your nightmare.

    Attempt to manipulate your nightmare. Some people are better at this than others. See if you can make certain things happen in your dreams, and once you get good at this, you should be able to make the frightening things go away. Don't get frustrated with this, because it comes faster to some people than others. Relax and take your time.
  5. 5
    Relax.
     Relax.
    Relax. Nightmares can also be caused by stress, such as wondering if you will get a job or not. Let go of your worries, and begin having happy dreams again. You can relax by either meditating, or having a nice day at the beach. Just make sure it's a quiet area where you can relax and chill out.


Tips

  • Keep and maintain a Dream Journal, even after your nightmares stop.
  • Try talking to different people, and see what works best for you.
  • See what things make the nightmare go away. For instance, if a pig jumps into your dream, do the scary things automatically go away? If they do, then manipulate your dream to make a pig appear whenever something scary comes.


Warnings

  • If the nightmare doesn't stop after one month, you should seek medical attention. You could be having nightmares because someone close had died, and in this case, it's very hard to get over it. If you are continually having problems getting over something in your life, and you consistently have nightmares about the subject, talk to a professional. They can help you.
