Stress And Dreams - How They Are Related

Nightmares are often seen by people under a lot of stress. Although it is not very 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 very clear that stress and dreams are interrelated.

Dreams are basically a part of the human subconscious, so there is enough possibility that these dreams act as the subconscious part of a person which helps him understand what is happening in him. 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.

They 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 get along 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. That is why people think that stress and dreams are connected.

In order to find out whether stress and dreams are inter connected a group students conducted a test about a subject for which they where 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. Where as the second group to whom no information was given, did not show any symptoms of stress. The end 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 have to 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.

The Inter relation of stress and dreams was always a fascinating topic for all researchers. This is so because all studies and tests they have conducted till now have not shown any solid proof for the fact that stress symptoms make a person see nightmares and stops them from enjoying a beautiful dream.
