Sleep quality is an extremely important thing to help us facing life with loads of pressure. After a long day of hard work, getting a good night’s sleep will help you recharge and get ready for the new day. However, sometimes because of the stresses in your life, anxiety haunts your subconscious dreams. In this case, sleep is no longer a mental cure but become a bad experience.
Anxious dreams not only upset you mentally, disturb your sleep, but also make you more stressed the next morning. You may be concerned that it heralds something bad about to happen. So is there a way to control subconscious dreams like this? Let’s find out more below in the article.
Why do we have anxious subconscious dreams?
Anxious dreams cause distress and depression. Not only do they panic and thrill while we sleep, but they also cause a restless state all day after you wake up. Nightmares are also considered anxiety dreams, although the emotions and fears associated are much stronger than those in normal dreams.
There are many causes of nightmares and anxious dreams, most of which are due to the actual stress and pressure you actually face. In what ways do they affect our subconscious? You probably already know that when we sleep, the brain is still active. Part of the brain’s job involves reassembling the memories and feelings of your day into a story. If your primary emotions are anxiety and stress, your dream is more likely to have similar experiences. Anxiety and nightmares can become causes and consequences of each other, forming a cycle of unpleasant human experiences.
The meaning of anxious subconscious dreams
Dreams often do not have much practical meaning. Many dreams seem logical with obvious facts, but many of them contain fictitious factors. For example, you might dream that you can fly, date a celebrity, or even become a historical figure. Likewise, if you encounter anxious dreams, it does not mean that the same will be true in your real life.
Studies have been devoted to decoding dreams, and many theories have been put forward. But up until now, there is no scientific evidence showing that dreams can predict the future.
Get rid of anxious subconscious dreams
Stopping worrying is almost impossible if your life is full of pressure. However, you can learn to control negative thoughts. Minimizing anxious thoughts during the day not only helps you feel better physically and mentally but also improves your sleep quality.
Perform a proper daily routine
Do not use TV, phone or computer for about 1 hour before going to bed. Instead, you can read books, listen to music, meditate or plan for the next day. As you lay back on your bed, let your mind cycle through positive thoughts, such as a good thing you saw, an interesting person you met, or a fascinating event you were looking forward to.
Avoid doing stressful things before going to bed
If you think about your financial situation or read complaining emails from customers before bed, your worries will follow you into your dreams. Of course, if that’s the right thing to do, you won’t be able to avoid it forever. But try to do it earlier. After that, spend some time relaxing with one of the good habits suggested above, and you’re less likely to end up with anxious dreams.
