Dreaming the Night Away…#DreamsExplained


*This is a collaborative post*

Have you ever wondered what your dreams are all about? Everyone dreams every night, some people never remember their dreams, whilst others do. Which are you?

I have always been a dreamer, most mornings I wake up and remember my dreams. Some days I remember a lot of it and other days only snippets. Some dreams I forget instantly and others stay with me all day, as I try to piece them together or make sense of them.

There are dreams that make no sense, some I want to forget and others that I hope will come true. But whatever they are, I am definitely a person who dreams a lot.

I have been asked by Adjustamatic, to share with you my sleep patterns and when I am most likely to dream, as part of their latest new campaign called #DreamsExplained. Soon they will be launching a video featuring Ian Wallace who is a top dream psychologist and they will be featuring five dreams.

Since having children my sleep patterns are all over the place and I have noticed that the more tired I am, the more I dream. I also can now sleep anywhere I am so tired all the time. I drop of to sleep so easily, that I barely read a couple of sentences of my book each night and I am gone.

Until three months ago, I was barely getting four hours a night, every night and it was all broken sleep. I found during this time my dreams were quite horrific at times, they were very clear and when I was abruptly woken by Alice, it took me a while to shake the dream off before I came too and could register what was happening.

I also find that I tend to dream as we get closer to the morning. How do I know this? Because when I was being woken 4 or 5 times a night, I would normally have 2 dreams a night and they were always the last couple of wake ups. It’s fascinating isn’t it? And not something that I have ever really thought a lot about before. Does this mean something?

The time that I have dreamt the most is when I was pregnant both times with my girls. Oh my, I would have really vivid dreams, sometimes they felt so real that it took me a while to realise it didn’t actually happen. Actually the last time I had vivid dreams like this was when I was at secondary school, I dreamt a whole day at school, to the point that when I woke up I thought it was a day later and took all the wrong books to school!! I had a tough job explaining that to my teachers.

Anyway back  to when I was pregnant…Sometimes my dreams would seem so realistic and not very pleasant that I would force myself awake. Have you ever done this? It’s not nice and I am pleased this doesn’t happen to often. Trying to force yourself out of dream, is not that easy and I end up feeling quite distraught after it.

So, what does it all mean? Let’s hope that Ian can answer some of this, as I find it really fascinating and I would love to find out more about the world of dreams…

    I’m such a dreamer! I’m pretty sure I’m dreaming all night long. The ones I remember are just before I wake up whether it be in the morning or when Baby Girl wakes me in the middle of the night. Most times I’ll be able to remember my dreams straight away but I do forget them really quickly too. Kat x

    Dreams – I always remember them, way more than my husband. But I’m not a great sleeper so that may be why. Agree, you have the most vivid dreams when you’re pregnant! I’ve also solved problems in my dreams and had strange things happen in them, where something has happened that came true. Fascinating stuff!

    I too experienced broken sleep, right up until about a month ago. It’s no fun.
    I have quite funny dreams at times, how cool to learn the meanings behind them 🙂

    I have pretty realistic dreams very often. Some of them are so pleasant that I don’t want to wake up.
