Five Most Common Nightmares

Five Most Common Nightmares

Everybody’s dreams are different, however there seems to some common dreams and nightmares that most people seem to have:

Many people have dreams in which they are falling. Some people suggest that this is the subconscious suggesting that there is something going wrong with your life or something over which you have no control.

A similar type of dream to this is the dream of being chased. In this type of dream you are often attempting to flee from someone or something, often with limited success. People who study dreams suggest that this might be something or someone that you are attempting to avoid. This could be something that you should confront rather than avoid.

Another terrifying dream involves teeth or other body parts falling out or off. This dream isn’t really about losing body parts. Some people think that this means that you are not saying what you want to say.

Adultery. Whether it is you cheating on a spouse, or a spouse cheating on, these dreams often suggest some sort of relationship problem. But not always what you think! It could just be that you feel that there is something coming between you such as stress or jobs or just time apart. These problems can be fixed easily without panic!

Not all dreams are terrifying, some are just embarrassing. The most common embarrassing dream that people have is going to school or work naked. No matter how old you are or how long ago school was, these dreams always seem to find a way to panic you!  Mostly these dreams are a result of stress or pressure. Relax!

According to a recent study, fear is not the most common cause of nightmares however. They found that fear was only the primary emotion in about a third of nightmares. Instead they found that emotions such as confusion, sadness, guilt and disgust were common emotions. They suggested the reason why fear was most commonly associated with nightmares was because those types of dreams were more memorable.

However, a lot of people don’t remember most of their dreams. If you want to increase your dream memory, keep a dream journal next to your bed so that you can write down your dreams the moment that you wake up in the morning. This will help you to remember more and more of your dreams and it can even help with lucid dreaming!
