Our dreams can offer some insight into our psyches while helping to solve problems and give direction.
Many of the dreams we have are the result of the brain “downloading” and interpreting the information we gathered throughout the day. However, dreams can also offer clues for us to examine about things we might not be seeing while awake. We often experience emotions in dreams that we need to express during our daily lives. You could almost consider our dreams as a dress rehearsal for how we can express those emotions. We experience our most vivid dreams during REM sleep. This helps us consolidate learning and memories while also preparing the brain to be awake.
