Why You Need To Keep A Journal By Your Bed

Our minds are amazing things. They have the ability to not only control our bodies and everything we do. So when it comes to dreams they really me something. 

Just think about it, your mind knows more about you then you. All your suppressed feelings and thoughts are all hidden in your mind even things you “forget” they are stored away. 

 Your dreams are stories your mind gives you hints to what you’re subconsciously feeling and thinking. That’s why I’m a strong advocate for sleep journaling. 

When you waking up from a dream it’s a good idea to take 5 minutes to write it down. Write it down and see if you notice any patterns. For example, if you keep having a dream about bullying kids you might have some subconscious feelings about bullying you had in your childhood. 

Or if you keep waking up with the thought of work or the errands you have to do in the morning. That might be a sign of a stressful life,  our your work is too controlling of your life. 

However, you might not realize this if you don’t really pay attention to it. Let’s be real when you wake up from a dream you think about it for a moment then you go on about your day unless it was really bad dream.

It’s good to think and write down your feelings when you first start out your day and pay attention to your feelings when they happened. It’s all about mindfulness you have to take time and realize how you feel and register it.
