It's All About Dreams
Dreams can make up memories, feelings, thoughts, fears, etc. When a person sleeps, these dreams play like a movie in your head. Sometimes we even have nightmares even though we try out hardest not to. Stress and everyday life is a factor of how we dream. We often may wake up in the middle of the night and when we go back to sleep, the dream may continue or it may not. Most people forget their dreams and they may wake up sometimes wondering what they dreamed about. Why are these dreams important to us? Are they telling us something? Maybe they are telling us to go a different direction with our life. Maybe our inner consciousness is telling us something. We can never control what dreams we have, we can only hope we don't have a nightmare.
Have you ever woke up and have watched yourself dream? This is called lucid dreaming. It's scary and can often happen to people. You can see yourself sleeping. We have 3-7 dreams per night. Most of them we just don't remember. The dreams start within 2 hours of the rapid eye movement stage. The rapid eye movement stage or known as REM Stage, is a way a person sleeps by their movement. We only dream about 2 hours per night as well. It's weird sometimes, because it seems like a lifetime that we are never gunna wake up from.
People will spend 6 years of their lifetime dreaming. I don't know if I believe this or not, because we sleep half of our lifetime. I feel dreaming is important to us and we should pay close attention to what we dream about. We dream about falling, climbing, weird geometric shapes, a picture of a childhood memory, our loved ones, etc. Some people just can't sleep and need medication to help us sleep. Also, to mention the people that sleep walk. All we can do is live a healthy life and make it stress free. Diet and exercise can always help of course. I decided to write this article, because I took a psychology class in high school. They made us watch the movie, Inception. I highly recommend that movie and I highly recommend you take a psychology class or even do research on dreaming. It's very interesting what humans have discovered.
Do you often remember your dreams?
