The most common dreams and their meanings

The most common dreams and their meanings

Dreams about falling   

Falling in dreams is very common. The falling dream is commonly interpreted as being afraid of something happening, or that an aspect of your life which is failing. Whether it’s your love life taking a nosedive, your career going downhill or anxiety about a certain situation, dreams where you are falling reveals insecurity.  

On the flipside, if in your dream you are happily free falling without fear, it could suggest that you are feeling confident, are not afraid of change and are ready to embrace what’s ahead.  

Dreams about death 

Another common theme in people’s dreams is death, which can be very disconcerting. It could be a loved one or dreaming that you’re dying yourself. Either way, this kind of dream reflects anxiety, change or fear of the unknown. Like death, changes in life don’t come with a manual for what’s on the other side. Those who are going through a period of uncertainty (such as job loss or divorce) may experience dreams of dying.  

Typically, no matter how weird the dream, one off dreams have little impact in our lives and there is no need to worry about the content. If you find yourself having the same dream over and over again, it can be beneficially to analyse what happens and see if it relates to any issues in your life that need fixing. 

Dreams about someone you know 

What do dreams mean when they involve people? Perhaps it’s a friend, a family member or someone from your past? Although it can seem random, the people you know who appear in your dreams often have a simple explanation. It could be someone you’ve seen or spoken to recently, someone you’re having disputes with, or someone you really love and care about. Either way, it’s likely that you were thinking about them or a situation than reminds you of them as you fell asleep. 

If it’s someone you haven’t thought about in a long time or who isn’t a big part of your life, try to deduce from it aspects such as their personality or their relationship with you to find a meaning. It could be what this person symbolises rather than the person itself. 

Dreams of flying  

Flying can be exciting, liberating and also quite scary. Many of us remember this kind of dream fondly, particularly as children. So what does flying in your dream mean? Depending on how you look at it, flying can reveal positive feelings of freedom, confidence and power –or it can depict your desire to escape.  

If you are struggling to fly in your dream, this is a sign that your feelings are not so positive, and it is suggested people experience these dreams when someone or something is standing in the way of them reaching their goals.

What Do Your Dreams Mean?

What does my dream mean? 

Dreams are one of the biggest mysteries of life. At one point or another, you have probably wondered ‘what does my dream mean?’ and you’re not alone. For centuries, people have taken an interest in dreams, what they mean, or what they could be telling us. Ancient civilisations thought of dreams as a medium between humans and the gods, and different cultures have believed them to be premonitions.   

The simplest explanation though is that dreams are a manifestation of our inner thoughts and feelings. Perhaps a window into our subconscious (as Sigmund Freud put it), or a way for us to solve problems.  

Whatever the reason, it is thought that 95-99% of all dreams are forgotten as soon as we wake up. A recent study conducted on mice even suggests that the brain actively forgets, making dream recall difficult. This makes it even more intriguing when we do remember a dream so vividly.

How to make your bedroom eco-friendly

How to make your bedroom eco-friendly

How to make your bedroom eco-friendly

Ready to get started on saving the planet and upgrading your bedroom style? Here’s our pick of the best tips for designing an eco-friendly bedroom!

1. Choose a gorgeous yet durable wooden bed

Beautiful, built to last and eco-friendly, the benefits of wooden beds are endless when it comes to eco-style design.

2. Use organic paints

Unlike normal gloss or emulsion paints that contain solvents and other harmful chemicals, you can purchase organic paints that are totally free of all pesticides, herbicides & toxins. VOC paints (and flooring for that matter) are very harmful for the environment, so make sure you opt for anti-VOC paints or low VOC paints at the very minimum. As well as paints there are also varnishes, primers and even wallpaper that are eco-friendly, too!

3. Make sure mattress is a plastic-free zone

Whilst you’re working toward styling your eco-friendly bedroom, don’t forget about your mattress. Many mattresses out on the market today actually contain PV or flame retardants that are a form of plastic. Not only are these harmful for the environment, but they are harmful for you too and can have negative implications on your health.

Instead, invest in a good quality mattress that has natural material components for the benefit of both you and the planet. Look out for materials such as wool, cotton, hemp and bamboo that are all-natural but still incredibly comfortable and supportive.

4. Opt for natural bedding

Using natural bedding made from organic cotton or bamboo is another way to be healthier and greener. These fabrics don’t contain any pesticides and 100% unbleached duvets, mattress protectors and pillows are becoming far more common these days and are found in any bedding store worth its salt! Yes, organic bedding is slightly more expensive, but they are a fantastic investment as they’re warm, soft, durable and sustainable. Be sure to stay away from any bedding that contains teflon, formaldehyde or flame resistance as these all defeat the aim of achieving a more green and eco-style design.

5. Go eco-friendly with your furniture

Eco-friendly bedroom furniture has been on the rise in recent years as the design world has searched for ways to become more sustainable. As a result, there’s a lot of eco-style furniture to get your hands on that doesn’t take up too much space and uses all-natural materials!

Benefits of an Eco-Friendly Bedroom

So, where do you start on your new sustainable style quest? In the bedroom of course! But before you begin, it’s important to understand the benefits of an eco-friendly bedroom so you can fully appreciate your efforts beyond just the visual aesthetic.

It’s energy efficient

We’ve all heard about carbon footprints and greenhouse gas emissions, but there’s a lot more you can do beyond buying energy efficient light bulbs. Eco-style design places focus on how we can better measure our energy output by making smart choices with materials, lighting and heating. For example, think about how insulating your carpet is, your curtains and drapes – do they effectively control the temperature in your room?

It helps you reduce waste

Rather than championing plastics and fast fabrics, eco-friendly design is all about recycling, upcycling and calling upon nature’s resources to furnish your space. Can you reuse something rather than discarding it? Would that old dining room chair look fabulous in the corner of your room with a lick of paint and a fancy cushion?

It’s durable

In the spirit of waste reduction, this type of interior design can be extremely durable and your natural material furniture will last a lifetime if you care for it correctly. Opt for quality over quantity, functionality over seasonal trends and invest in sturdy natural statement pieces – you’ll soon find that you’ll be replacing items much less, saving yourself money and the environment in the process!
