How Dreams Affect Our Mood?

Dreams can seem so real that you’re almost convinced that they really happened. Remembered one minute and forgotten the next, you might think you don’t dream at all. But the reality is, you do dream. You dream for about two hours every night in your REM cycle which happens about 90 minutes into your slumber. You take your emotions of the day into the night with you when you dream and subconsciously deal with what life has thrown at you – good or bad. Dreams are based on your feelings so it’s important you sleep in a comfortable, supportive environment like Nature’s Embrace Latex Mattresses ethically made, certified organic mattresses.

What are dreams, why do we dream, and how does it all work?

Dreams are images, emotions, and thoughts that run through your mind while you are asleep. Normally, these dreams happen during the REM stage of your sleep cycle. During this cycle, your heart rate, breathing, and brain activity increase. You dream to solve problems, process emotions, and analyze goings on in your life. That’s why a lot of the time, a dream will be about something that is going on in your life and seem so real. Because dreams can be so vivid, they can make you feel a certain type of way, happy, sad, even scared! The science of how it works: the cortical regions of the brain deliver messages to the limbic region of the brain for processing emotions.

Do dreams affect your sleep quality or your mood?

A night of good sleep can lead to good dreams where you’ve problem solved and stumbled upon a solution. This would have you waking up energized and ready to take on the day. The opposite is true for bad dreams. These are called nightmares. Nightmares can wake you up in the middle of the night and leave you rattled in the morning. If you ask a psychologist, they’ll tell you your dreams reflect your emotional health. Your emotional thoughts from the day seep into the night and negative ones tend to be more intense than positive ones. However, dreams do regulate emotional health and so, can diffuse negative emotions leaving you in a more positive head space when you wake up. Dreams are affected by your sleep pattern. If you haven’t been sleeping well and finally do manage to catch some zzz’s, you’re more likely to have memorable, vivid dreams.
