Everyone needs sleep, but its biological purpose remains a mystery. Sleep affects almost every system in the body – from the brain, heart, and lungs to metabolism, immune function, mood, and disease resistance. Research shows that a chronic lack of sleep, or getting poor quality sleep, increases the risk of disorders including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, depression, and obesity.
Sleep is a complex and dynamic process that affects how you function in ways scientists are now beginning to understand. The most intriguing aspect of the sleep is dreaming. Many scientists believe that our brain is more active during our sleep than when we are awake. Why we sleep and what happens during the hours when we are asleep is still a hotbed of research. Some dismiss dreams as meaningless chatter of our brain while some experts agree on the facts that dreams bring objectivity to everyday experience and are pretty transparent.
Dreams aren't that hard to get; what's hard is to analyze them for insights and act on them. In addition to providing insights, dreams may also serve as warnings, putting you in touch with something you're not consciously aware of. One of the cited examples is of a psychologist who paid attention to his dreams that warned of illness, went to the doctor and learned he was in the early stages of cancer. Interestingly, dreams can be prophetic too and there are many cited examples of them around the world. Majority of us never try to decode our dreams and that is a missed opportunity to enrich your life.
