I was reading an article in the Metro this morning which discusses the importance of dreaming. I thought it was worth sharing so that you all can feel blessed you had such a strange dream which made perfect sense until you woke up.
According to the article, dreaming is like overnight therapy. It helps you move on from painful experiences you have.
Research was carried out where 35 people were split into two groups and viewed 150 emotional images. The first group was shown these images in the morning and then again at night before bed, while the second group looked at the images at night and then again (12 hours later) in the morning.
The MRI scans showed that those who slept between viewing the images showed a ‘significant decrease’ in their emotional reaction to the images.
So for all of you who dream tonight, just think of all the money you saved on seeing a therapist.
