Smarter Health: Dreaming 101

Most mornings, I ask Kiddo," How were your dreams?" Sometimes, she says, "Good!" Other times, she says, "I don't know...I don't remember them." Dreams are a funny thing, eh? I tend to remember mine, and often have repeat dreams, and enjoy very vivid dreams many nights of the week....I've even woken up, then fallen back asleep and went back to that same dream I was having.

But, I read that we forget 90% of our dreams, which means I am having a lot of dreams! Also, did you know that everybody dreams, even babies? Babies won't remember their dreams until about the age of three. Some of us dream in color, others in black and white.

It got me thinking about the meaning of our dreams. Popular dream themes (hey, that rhymes!) and their meanings:

Being Lost - Not knowing your way means you are conflicted about something in your life and aren't sure what to do about it.

Being trapped - Makes sense that this means you feel trapped by some part or situation or relationship in your life.

Falling - You are being uncertain, not supported or insecure about something happening in real life or are feeling overwhelmed. 

Do you remember your dreams? Do you dream in black and white or color?

I remember some of my dreams, usually the really bizarre ones.

Like over Thanksgiving...I had this dream that I told the principal that I was quitting PTO, and she dropped this HUGE file on her desk in front of me and said "Do you see this? I have all these complaints about you, if you quit, I go public with them"

It was weird... it's still weird.

I think different thinkers remember or don't remember dreams. I have 3 very literal minds in my family and they have vivid and strange dreams. My middle son and I rarely dream, well rarely remember them:)

I remember about half... Last night I dreamed that I had a tank filled with carnivorous fish, and I was looking for what to feed them. Weird.

I remember them sometimes and they are in color.

Color. I remember my dreams most of the time. I think it's because my sleep gets interrupted a lot.
