How to Go to Bed After Watching a Horror Movie ??

Watching horror movies can sometimes lead to a person feeling frightened and unable to sleep. If you’re frightened or anxious after watching a horror movie, you can face your fears by acknowledging and talking about what frightens you. You can think about your fears logically and work to overcome them. Another thing you can try is to distract yourself from your fears by watching or reading something funny, doing an activity that requires focus. You can also make yourself and your bedroom as comfortable as possible to help you fall asleep.


#1 Facing Your Fears
1 Acknowledge the things you are scared of. 

After watching a horror movie, you may be worried about zombies, ghosts, serial killers, vampires, or a myriad of frightening things. Think about what scares you, and acknowledge the things that you fear. Recognizing what is making you scared can help you deal with that fear logically....or just make you more scared (this method may not work for everyone)
For example, you may be afraid of someone breaking into your home, or you may be afraid of being haunted by a ghost.



2 Talk about your fears. 

It can be very helpful to tell someone else how you are feeling. Talk to your sibling or parents, or call or text a friend. Choose someone who is supportive and will listen as you explain what is upsetting you.
You can go to your sibling’s room and tell them “I just watched Saw IV and now I’m scared that someone is going to torture me.” They may be able to calm you down and help you realize that you’re not actually in danger.


3 Be logical about what frightens you. 

Remind yourself that you are just as safe as you were before watching the movie. Tell yourself that it was a movie, not reality, and realize that the movie was designed to scare you. Hundreds of people worked hard and millions of dollars were spent creating costumes, putting on makeup, and adding special effects to create a horror flick. Consider the likelihood of your fear coming true and use rational thinking to pick apart your fears.[3]

Though it may seem scary and plausible in the movie, zombies are not going to flood your neighborhood. There’s no boogeyman out to get you, either.


4 Overcome your fears. 
The best way to overcome your fear is to face it. Expose yourself to your fear if you have access to it, or imagine exposing yourself to it if you don’t have access to what frightens you. Breathe deeply and tell yourself that you are okay, even if you are frightened.[4]
For example, if you are afraid of the dark after watching a scary movie, turn off the lights in your room. Try to sit in the dark for a few minutes before turning the lights back on and realizing that there’s nothing there to hurt you.
For instance, you may be afraid of spiders after watching a horror movie about them. Look at pictures of spiders online. Remind yourself that while they might be creepy, but they aren’t going to swell to an enormous size and try to take over your town.



5 View the movie bloopers. 

Watching a blooper reel or behind the scenes footage of the movie can reinforce the fact that it’s all fiction. Seeing the set and the characters in their regular forms may help ease your fears. Watching a scary scene dissolve because of mistakes, laughter, or other issues can help you understand that there’s nothing to be afraid of.[5]
You can also watch extras included in the film, like interviews with cast members, or short clips on how the movie was made, how the costumes were prepared, and how makeup was applied to characters to make them look scary.
If you don’t have a bonus DVD with this material, search for it on YouTube or a similar site.
