What does it mean to have nightmares?

Having nightmares is not natural. They are the result of body adjusting to the stress levels. In everyday life we get frustrated in one way or the other. Our fear escapes during that period of the dream phase. REM phase is the time we dream most of our dreams and it is the most fragile time that can manifest nightmares and scarry dreams.
Bad food, processed meats and also large ammounts of sweets and sodas, contribute to bad health and also what is worse, bad dreams. Also during the perod of cleansing from poisons and artificial chemical compounds, our body stresses out and the mind feels it.
Having bad dreams doesn't mean you are a bad person for one thing. Sometimes people believe that if they are constantly dreaming nightmares, that somehow they are blaming themselves for something. The reaction that is agressive at night during sleep toward the one who is the dreamer is the response of the BODY state and the MIND itself.
Some believe the nightmares are the case of bad spirits and that might be the case, but in most cases they are not, and are simply because you are doing something bad to the body and mind. Adopting bad attitude toward yourself, bad habbits and also toxic behaviors is a sure way for nightmares to happen.
Bad noise that happens during the night can provoke nightmares and leave you scared. Sometimes people should use the headphones to cover their ears in order to use the quet soundless aproach to dreaming. We tried to use the earplugs and happened to decrease the times we had bad dreams.
Also we believe it is evolutionary, to have more accute hearing before bed, because in ancient times people had to have one ear ready during the night to hear a stalker, burglar or any other danger in the night.
Glass of milk can help cure nightmares. Milk has plenty of vitamins and also, a muscle relaxant sugar. For those who are lactose intolerant, a glass of warm ginger tea has been proved to benefit good night sleep.

Sleep positions determine personalities?

When we started this website, we just couldn't imagine, or dream for that matter, that there was a belief, that took into account the way you are positioned in your bed while sleeping, determines your personality. Every person of course has own position for sleep, but alledged study showed that all variations of positions can be grouped into six major sleep positions that are condidered the dominent. Dominant sleep positions are:
  1. The Yearner
  2. The Starfish
  3. The Log
  4. The Soldier
  5. The Freefaller
  6. The Foetus
The "Yearner", position where a person lays on its side with arms streatched in a grabbing way, like the person is yearning something, is supposedly according to the examinations, a persons who are suspicious of everything and are very rational in approach to life. The "Starfish", is a position of a person that lays on its back arms up like its giving up. This personality is a good listener, and a person who likes to help other people. The "Log", a position of sleep wherea a person lays on its side whith both arms near his sides. Like a log. These are easy going, but sometimes people consider them naive and easily tricked. The "Soldier" is a similar position like a "Starfish" except both arms are down near sides. These people are reserved, quiet and they hate noisy social scenes. The "Freefaller" position is where the person lays on his/hers belly down. These people are brash, but they can't cope with criticism. The "The Foetus" is a known position where a person lays on his side, knees up and arms bent in elbows. People of this sleep position, are sensitive even though they look rough and tough at first. The tests were, as we were told, able to group people's sleep positions into this six variations. Websites that sell bed products, like sheets and pillows, and of course beds for that matter, use these beliefs that are supposedly done under laboratory conditions, so they could sell you more product. The whole purpose of these so called "sleep position science stuff", was there to dull your thinking part that decides about buying new bed or sheets so you could achieve the best position you want in order to sleep better, and then buying whatever they offerred. For example, nobody would want to become The "Freefaller", because they can't stand the arguments. Many people that we talked about said that they tend to have more than one favorite sleeping positions. Sometimes, when we are too tired, so its not always possible for our body to remember these positions, and it will choose the first one because of the tiredness. The other thing is of course, the health problems people have. Some people need to sleep in a certain way because of the asthma or the tendency to snore more often. Even most of them have recommendations form their doctors of which way they should position themselves not just for good rest, but not to agravate the condition they are in. These positions are the cases where only one person was observed, but there are also positions of two persons who are laying next to each other in the same bed and also the meaning behind all of it. This is where we should draw the line. By observing and learning these "sleep positions and their meaning", someone will create an anxiety state that will be felt by the person laying next. Is this the best sleeping position for couples? The spoon? Come on, what this does, this type of thinking creates a lot of pressure and will not help both of sleepers relax. In reality, people are dead tired when they go to bed. Hugging your partner is ok, but it isn't natural to sleep in the same position the whole night. If we do sleep like that, than we wake up tense, in pain and even with numb limbs. Dreamsigns advice is...sleep any way you like and don't worry! It takes way much more to determine a person than just a simple sleeping position. We are all dreamers and for good dreams we need to relax and leave worries behind for another day.

Is tea good for sleep?

effect of tea on sleep
Some 5,000 years ago, a Chinese Emperor by the name of Shen Nung sat in front of his boiling pot at his camp, and the wind blew some leaves from a tree bush that fell into it. Shen felt that special smell of freshness coming from the boiling water. He was so intrigued by the aroma and he needed to try it. He realized that the beverage was created by this simple method of dropping a leaf into the boiling water. This story is what Google tells us how it happened. Actually its just a simple good old, ancient, self-promotion. A way that was used by the royal Chinese writers, to somehow attribute this revelation to the powerful emperor. Most probably, all of China was drinking tea by then. There are plenty of teas that can help you relax and are the best beverages that you can drink before bed. Chamomile tea, Valerian tea, St. Johns Wort...etc. But why is tea so calming? Well, those medicines we use from day to day basis are mostly made from plants. Plants contain components that in this case have excellent anti-anxiety properties. For example Chamomile can be used to suit nervousness and is a good antibacterial property. Valerian can instantly offer a nerve stabilizing effect, but most of these contain also caffeine. Now why would you drink tea before bed time that has the caffeine in it? Because that is the time your brain has most of the melatonin that is putting you into a good old dream land. Caffeine will increase the pulse frequency and it will result with more dynamic dreams. The rest of the components are there to help your muscles relax. Involuntary muscles, are those muscles that we can't control by our thoughts. Just like we can't stop our heart from beating, those muscles that are mostly inside our abdomen are easing up and relaxing. People will tell you that anxiety comes from the gut. Not from the head but from the gut. That feel of thousands steel razor blade butterflies coming from your belly is a pure anxiety. Your brain on the other hand has this excess caffeine that he wants to get rid of so, will send you a bit more to the bathroom. We have noticed that when we switch to tea instead of coffee, there is a different state of alertness. On pure coffee the state is almost panic like, and the brain processes deep thinking harder. If there is a spatial recognition model, or a simple Mahjong's game, there will be a challenge on caffeine. Caffeine can't do two things good enough. The opinion is quite otherwise. People still believe that coffee gives them superpowers. That is a lie. The tea itself has smaller amount of that, about the third of the concentration, but these in combination with other relaxing chemicals are crucial to our better dreams. Brain always needs stimulation. Its not that unclear, but every creature on earth uses some form stimulation on their brains. People learn new skills, or watch TV. Mind is active all the time with the former, and basic brain functions with the latter. Brain so needs to be active. Sugar and small doses of caffeine help him work the best. What kind of dreams should we expect to dream while drugged on tea? The most active ones indeed. When the body is calm, brain tries to think of something dynamic to show that he is ready for action, even if the whole system is heavily resting. Dreams include: swimming, flying, riding a bicycle, climbing...playing Soccer, football...etc. Dreams that compensate for the rest state we are in. If we are not calm and are even mad before going to bed, the brain needs more time to combat the adrenaline and calm down, except the time needed to get into the REM state isn't forever, so there could be nightmares, or dreams that are off and nerve consuming. So is tea good for your sleep? Yes! The regular use of tea before bed time will in a long run calm your nervous system and you will sleep better and wake up refreshed.
