Reading practice on dreams
What are dreams?
For the majority of us, dreams are an ongoing part of our lives. Some of them we remember, some we don’t. We may consider them to be highly meaningful and feel greatly impacted by them, or we may view them as a collection of the day’s events; an amalgamation of useless images or random neurons firing in the brain.
There are a number of different theories on dreams and their interpretations. Sigmund Freud referred to dreams as being the royal road to the unconscious. He believed they held huge significance to our unconscious thoughts, feelings and desires.
Why are dreams important?
In one study, researchers looking to find a correlation between dreams and well-being found that waking people who are about to enter REM sleep, and thus denying them the opportunity to dream, caused them to experience more tension, depression and anxiety in their waking lives. Some participants deprived of dreaming gained weight, had difficulty concentrating and experienced a lack of coordination.
Some scientists say that dreams are meant to help the mind process emotions, incorporate memories and solve problems. Others think that dreams are helpful to the brain in processing the day’s events and the dreamer’s thoughts.
