Stress and Dreams

Nightmares are often seen by people under a lot of stress. Although it is not noticeably clear whether stress is the reason for people to see nightmares or nightmares are one of the reasons for people to feel stress, but it is truly clear that stress and dreams are interrelated. (“Stress And Dreams – How They Are Related”)

Dreams are a part of the human subconscious, so there is enough possibility that these dreams function as the subconscious part of a person which helps him understand what is happening in him. (“Stress And Dreams – How They Are Related”) Many people do not accept the fact that they are affected by stress disorders but in turn their mind denies this fact by making them dream about the same thoughts that bothers them.

There are many findings which show that stress causes nightmares. But this completely depends upon a person’s mind fluctuations. People who are prone to stress disorder may often try to find out the source of their stress in their dreams, but some see dreams that helps them to have a good relationship with this disorder without any further complications. “But apart from all this, there are other people who dream about stress which end up in horrifying nightmares.” (“But Apart From All This, There Are Other People Who Dream …”) That is why people think that stress and dreams are connected.

To find out whether stress and dreams are interconnected a group students conducted a test about a subject for which they were going to have an exam in a few days. For this, the students were divided into two groups. Information was passed on to the first group that they will have a difficult exam. But for the second group no information was given.

The result of this test was, the first group to whom the information about the difficult exam was passed had undergone stress by thinking about the difficulty they have to face all through the exam thereby making them dream about their failure in the exam which in turn gave them a few restless nights.

Whereas the second group to whom no information was given, did not show any symptoms of stress. The result of this test was that the stress symptoms stopped the students from seeing positive dreams of exam and made them see the worry some exam which they must face.

The test which was done for stress and dreams connection can also be a little inconclusive. The stress what the students faced may be due to some other case which was accompanied by the problematic situation. But in both ways, it ends up in same conclusion that stress, and dreams are interconnected as the stress factor stops a person from seeing positive dreams.
