Dreams have been described as “the window in to our soul”, but is there any value in exploring them? The short answer is most definitely “yes”.
Research shows that talking about a dream for approximately an hour “can result in “aha” moments for people”. We also know that during the pandemic, according to the Lyon Neuroscience Centre, dream recall increased by up to 35%.
I have been fascinated by dreams all my life, and have worked professionally as a TV “Dream Expert” in the media. As a therapist many of my clients have found it helpful to explore what their dreams and nightmares mean.
Mindfulness has been a proven strategy for helping us get better sleep. My new book – Answers in the Dark: Grief, Sleep and How Dreams Can Help You Heal aims to join the dots between our sleep, dreams and mental health; specifically how grief shows up even if no one has died. It explores some big myths of sleep, offers a Sleep Cycle Repair Kit including mindfulness activities, and top tips to help you decode your dreams. It’s available to order on Amazon.
