Katy Perry’s “Bon Appetit” Music Video Is A Culinary Adventure That Won’t Leave Your Nightmares Anytime Soon

As far as the horror genre goes, I am a bonafide wimp. It’s not that I don’t like horror movies and TV shows. I just happen to have an extremely low threshold of scare. I got through all of 42 seconds of the teaser trailer for the It remake before I closed out the window (yes, it was the sewer scene that did me in, because, of course, it was), but I will trust you when you say it looks awesome. Suffice to say, my watching the entire music video for “Bon Appétit” by Katy Perry featuring Migos is a true feat. I experienced all four minutes and 17 seconds of nightmare fuel and lived to tell the tale.

Don’t get me…

How to Stop Nightmares and Get A More Restful Sleep!

Have you ever experienced a bad dream so horrifying that your heart was pounding when you woke up? Perhaps this is a regular occurrence for you, and you’ve started to dread going to bed?

Nightmares can ruin your sleep and leave you feeling exhausted during the day, but fortunately there are steps you can take to get a better night’s rest.

Nightmares are more common in young children, but can affect anyone. They are not harmful, but can result in fatigue if they continue every night or most nights over a long period of time.

Understand the science behind nightmares, as this may make them less frightening.

When we sleep, we progress through several stages throughout the night. You can think of sleep as occurring in waves or cycles, with each lasting between 90 and 110 minutes. This is further subdivided into five stages, known as Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4, and REM sleep. It is in this final stage that dreams and nightmares occur. Scientists are not sure exactly why we dream or precisely how the brain generates this strange experience. One theory is that during REM sleep, the brain may be attempting to form a coherent “story” from fragments of knowledge and memories it previously stored away. Around half of adults will have nightmares occasionally.

People who have experienced trauma may also have nightmares in which they relive the incident.

Some medications affect sleeping patterns, which may trigger nightmares. For example, some anticonvulsants medicines used in the treatment of epilepsy) can result in especially vivid dreams.
