The Meaning of Dreams

Did you dream last night? Is a vivid dream you had last week still on your mind? Or perhaps you woke up and couldn’t remember what you’d dreamt about even though it was so good you didn’t want it to end. Dreams are a common part of everyone’s beauty rest. In fact, it’s estimated that we’ll spend about six years dreaming during our lifetime. With so much time spent dreaming, doesn’t it make sense that our dreams are somehow relevant to our life? Find out why we dream and if dreams act as a bridge to our emotions…

The Sleep Cycle

One thing experts do agree on is the majority of dreams occur during the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) cycle of sleep, which occurs at 60-90 minute intervals throughout the night.

There are five stages of the sleep cycle we go through while we rest. After the fourth stage of this cycle, which is the deepest sleep stage, REM begins.

This fifth stage of the sleep cycle is a very active stage in which the heart Beat is elevated, breathing increases and Blood pressure rises. The easiest way to tell if someone is in REM sleep is to check for eye movement.

REM sleep is thought to be so important to overall health that numerous studies have been conducted to determine whether or not a lack of it affects mental abilities such as memory, concentration and learning.

While lack of overall sleep is known to cause problems in these areas, so far there’s no conclusive evidence that lack of REM sleep is the culprit. (See related article: 7 Tips for a Better Night’s Sleep )
