Find out why this pop star struggle with episodes of horrific sleep paralysis.

Sleep paralysis is a condition of temporary inability to move or speak when falling asleep or waking up. It’s one of those terrifying moments when you’re laying down in bed, and you feel like you want to shout or move, but you can’t open your mouth, you can’t open your eyes and it feels like someone is in the room with you.

In a recent interview with BBC, Zara Larsson, the Swedish pop sensation, admits to having horrific episodes of sleep paralysis since 2015.

Oh my God, it’s scary! Basically, you wake up and you literally cannot move. Your brain is active, but your body is not yet awake.”

It’s weird. It lasts half a minute maybe – but it kind of feels like you’re trapped there for half an hour.”

“I get it a lot when I’m stressed out, or when I have a lot of things going on.”

Despite the horror of sleep paralysis, which Kendall Jenner also revealed she suffers from, there is also an upside too. Sometimes, as she falls asleep, she has a sense of wellbeing and positivity envelope her body.

"It's like a wave comes over me. Energy is just vibrating through your body and it's awesome,"
