Why do we have Nightmares?

#TheDailyPost #Nightmare

Have you found yourself having nightmares lately but don’t know why? Below is a short list of why we get nightmares.

  1. Eating habits – Yes sir, that late snack you had, full of carbs my dear friend could be the culprit. Try treating yourself to a glass of water instead if you find yourself being hungry. Eating food that you are unaware you are allergic to could also be the case.
  2. Life changing event – Death in a dream could sometimes be the interpretation of a life event. The sudden end of a relationship, or job, or personal conflict.  Could be anything really, but our dreams are a continuation of what we think of during the day.
  3. Medication – Did you start taking pills for something? Prescription drugs can alter your sleeping pattern.
  4. Sleeping disorders – Unfortunately, already having a sleeping issue could cause you to have nightmares.

Hopefully reading this will bring light into why you’ve had nightmares. I know sometimes I will have horrible dreams in regards to my husband or family and will then wake up trying to interpret what it means. In reality I might have had a late night snack. Or it can simply mean a stage in my life has ended and I need to move on to the next. Don’t fret, sweet dreams are right around the corner.


4 Movies to Watch

Challenge Day #4 – Favorite movies you never get sick of watching

This goes without question, one of the movies that I will watch and watch again is Pride and Prejudice. It’s probably why I chose my Favorite Quote from Jane Austen. I love that it’s timeless, I love that it’s traditional, I love the scenery. My mother had 4 daughters so it’s somewhat relatable to me. When I’m home alone and have nothing to watch it’s my go to. Second favorite is one that recently released, The Age of Adaline. It’s far fetched from reality but a great love story. I’m a sucker for romantic movies, what can I say. On days that my hubby is home and want to watch a movie, its either the recent Man of Steel or Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. I hear Wonder Woman is coming out, along with Aquaman and probably Flash to finally lead to the Justice League, and we simply cannot miss anything. So we watch, and re-watch and watch again trying to guess what will happen in the coming movies. The action is superb, the sound is incredible, the story-line well like I said we can’t get enough of. So there you go, my favorite movies.

What do you think of my favorites, and do you have any? Star Wars is next on the list, but we all know that you can’t just watch it out of the blue. You plan your weekend around watching Star Wars.
