If your mother has ever nagged you about going to bed early to catch up on your beauty sleep, it turns out that she actually has a point.
Ever wake up feeling as though you’re still dreaming? We’ve all been there, that hazy morning moment when it’s difficult to tell the difference between reality and unconsciousness. Sometimes dreams can be so intense that they linger for a longer period and feel almost like real memories, which can be a weird sensation, especially when you’ve had some pretty strange dreams!
But, did you know that your dreams (even the strange ones) can actually influence you in your waking life?
Can we alter our dreams?
d.REM is a curatorial project by Allegra Shorto to explore and expand the relationship between art and dream. Each episode is a soundscape lasting the duration of a REM sleep cycle, roughly 90 minutes, to be slept through.
Experienced an increase in nightmares recently? It might not be the cheese you had before bed. It could actually be down to the heatwave we are experiencing at the moment.
What a scorcher! The heat wave we’re having in the UK right now is definitely well-deserved! But, while it’s great to spend lots of time outside, it’s super important to make sure you do it safely, especially if you’re working out.
