Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of the night terrors that aren’t about fighting equine humans. According to the Mayo Clinic, treating night anxiety is about preventing triggers and helping people fall asleep. For example, if night anxiety emerges during stressful times, learning ways to cope with stress (through cognitive behavioral therapy or hypnosis) is usually the first line of defense. There is also a treatment called “anticipatory awakening,” which involves waking up 15 minutes before a nighttime horror to prevent it. Of course, if there’s a major medical condition adding to the horror, you should also see a doctor or health care provider for treatment. But some people never seek treatment for night anxiety and just find ways to prevent it themselves.
