Smarter Health: Dreaming 101

Posted by   + Show Post

 

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, but I don't think I dream in color.  I've never really thought about whether they were color or black and white.  Now I'll have to try to figure it out! :P

Sometimes I remember, sometimes I don't. I am pretty sure I dream in color.

Sometimes I dream that I am dating a celebrity and I am VERY disappointed when I wake up, lol!  The last one was John Stamos because I had seen that commercial that he is in where the wife is seeing him standing in the doorway instead of her husband (yogurt commercial maybe??). That was a very nice dream. ;)

I remember some of my dreams, but can't recall whether they were color or black and white.
