Sometimes, getting a good night�s sleep is not easy. We may toss and turn, or even wake up during the night and then find it next to impossible to get back to sleep. This article will help you know how to get a good night�s sleep. You would be surprised to know that diet plays a major factor. There are certain foods that can affect your sleep. For instance, large quantities of food in the evening cause heartburn and stomach trouble � this problem worsens if you lie down. So avoid rich, fatty or greasy foods, and stay away from spicy foods, as the stomach needs time to digest these, and may keep you awake.
We have learned now that the question is not so simple. When we ask “What do you mean, when you ask if a dream has meaning?”, several options unfold that make this question difficult to answer. However, we don’t have to be fooled by the legal terms. When Bill Clinton replied “It depends on what is, is”, we all knew what “is” was, it was sex with Monica Lewinski. And when someone asks what a dream means, they usually are asking if the dream has an important message for them.
The great theorist Sigmund Freud attempted to bridge brain and mind by theorizing that dreams helped protect sleep by partially covering up disturbances, while letting them blow off a little steam. Thus we might feel the need to urinate during sleep, but not strong enough that it would cause damage, so instead of the mind receiving the message from the brain to wake up and pee, it instead got the signal that it was already awake and looking for a bathroom. The dreamer could imagine him/herself urinating and get some relief from this, thus allowing the body to continue sleeping until the need to urinate was truly urgent and not just a little impulse. The same process was then applied to thoughts about topics and situations in the dreamer’s past that might arise during sleep, especially the ones that the dreamer might keep repressed when awake.
