Do you suffer from nightmares? It seems about 45 per cent of the population suffers from bad dreams or nightmares at times during their life.

Some people have a lot of nightmares while others have only a few, but it is a common experience in humans that many of us sometimes have frightening dreams. While they generate anxiety in our sleep, nightmares and dreams can help us relieve the stress of daily life by allowing us to express our deepest feelings in a controlled way, like steam escaping from a kettle. By expressing emotions in a safe environment, our waking stress levels are reduced, and negative feelings are dissipated. It is all about achieving emotional balance and peace of mind.
