What causes sleep terrors in adults? And how can you prevent them?

Report as

I hope I understand right, by saying sleep terrors, you mean nightmares?

If it is, think about sheep jumping from a fence(Not Joking, I know this is a classic answer but really helps). It helps you to have good dreams and also to sleep faster.

Meditation prior to going to sleep has always helped me.....

I'm not exactly sure what causes them, and I don't know for sure if there is a way to prevent a sleep terror, but I don't think that's it's possible to prevent them

There's no way to really tell what causes them. You can think good things.

It runs in my family. Sleep, calming ones self before bed, cut down on caffine, and most important...Sleep again.

Referencing to less than "beneficial" moments in one's life. De-stressing in ways non-toxic to oneself in the long run. Engaging in activities which accesses one's creativity while releasing anger/anxiety: exercise, art, music, poetry, writing, etc. Hope this helps.
