I Have No Dreams
I love having dreams. But on Day 19, 20 and 21 of the 30 Day Sleep Challenge I didn’t have any – that I can remember. I used to have such intense dreams I would carry those emotions with me throughout the day, even though I couldn’t remember exactly what my dream was about. There was a time I wanted to keep a notebook by my bed so I could write down my dreams as soon as I woke up, before I forgot them.
12:15am – 7:45 am (7hours 30minutes), Hit Snooze: like 10x?
2:00am – 8:30am + 5:00pm-6:00pm nap (7hours 30 minutes), Hit Snooze: n/a
2:15am – 9:45am + 5:00pm cat nap (7hours 30 minutes), Hit Snooze: 0x
Why we dreams and what they mean are different to everyone. I believe that dreams (and nightmares) are subconscious thoughts and feelings, hopes and fears, you’re unable to express when you’re awake. It’s the ultimate mental escape, which is just another reason that getting sleep is so important. It gives me a window to a part of my soul I’m either ignoring or am oblivious to.
So what does it mean that I’m not having any dreams? Does that mean I’m content? Or does it mean that even my brain needs a break from everything?
