Dreams are unique to every single human being, and their interpretation often open to much discussion.
So just what is your mind trying to tell you when you slumber?
Follow on for the 13 things your dreams reveal about you.
How creative you are
Creative people are more likely to dream about unusual settings (rather than home or work) and about obstacles in the natural world, such as a log or a rock they can’t get around.
Your political views
People who describe themselves as conservatives are more likely to have mundane, realistic dreams, while liberals have a more varied and active dream life.
Does that mean liberals are more open-minded?
Or that they’re caught up in their own fantasies?
Take your pick.
That you’ve got a heart problem
People who have frequent nightmares may be significantly more likely to suffer from an irregular heartbeat or chest pain compared with those who don’t have them, according to a study of older adults.
That may be because heart problems can make it more difficult to breathe at night.
