I've put my ‘Dream Doctor’ hat on today...
Sleep research is moving along quickly and so too is dream research - most people find their own dreams fascinating... even if others don't.
While I've been away the last nine days in last Thursday's Mirror newspaper I've written about some of the most common dreams and nightmares - and what they symbolise and potential tips you might try if you have one of these. I hope some of the dream and nightmare themes I've written about resonate with your dream life.
TODAY’S TIP: Believe me if you don't think you dream, you do, you'd end up with emotional issues if you didn't as it's crucial part of the sleep stages.
If you don't remember them it's probably because you're a sound sleeper during the critical stage of dreaming.
One thing you can do is lie there quietly when you first wake up, free your mind of any first morning thoughts about work or jobs to do, etc., and see if some of your recent dream images come back to you. Sometimes simply relaxing your mind before jumping up and starting your day means that images have time to slip back into your consciousness.
Take care, Pamx
