People fallen out of love with their partner for dream

  • Print
A third of British couples admit they have fallen out with their partners over how they've behaved in a dream, according to a poll.
The research found that 47 per cent of people let good or bad dreams impact how they feel when they wake up.
Dreams aren't just affecting the nation's morale, they could be impacting our relationships too, the findings suggest.

Nearly a third of people (28 per cent) admitted to falling out with their partner because of how they've behaved in a dream.

Almost half admit they are so influenced by their dreams they let them affect their mood the following day, while 40 per cent said dreams can change the way they feel about others, the poll for bed maker Silentnight found.

As well as making or breaking relationships, nearly 60 per cent of Brits said dreams have helped them to solve a problem, while 37 per cent admitted that they rely on dreams to help them make decisions in their waking life.
The survey of 2,000 UK residents also revealed 70 per cent of sleepers said they wake up feeling more tired if they have been dreaming.

The types of dreams Brits are having tend to have a common theme. Nearly half (49 per cent) said they had recurring dreams about being chased, while 29 per cent said they had recurring dreams about falling.

Commenting on the survey findings, Silentnight sleep expert Dr Nerina Ramlakhan said it is common for people to wake up feeling out of sorts after a night of dreaming and that we can all get powerful insights from our dreams if we start to really pay attention to them.

Dr Ramlakhan added: 'A good place to start is to write your dreams down as soon as you wake up. Keep a diary on your bedside table and write the dream down before you tell anyone about it.

'You may not immediately arrive at the meaning of your dream but the interpretation may come hours later, for example, while you are daydreaming or exercising.'
If you are suffering from nightmares or waking up feeling jaded, Dr Nerina advises addressing bad habits that could be impacting your sleep.

Dr Nerina Ramlakhan said: 'Noisy, dream-laden sleep can arise from poor lifestyle habits such as too many stimulants, alcohol, caffeine and refined sugars, or looking at screens too close to bedtime.
'All of these can over-stimulate the nervous system causing increased REM (dreaming) sleep. Clean up your lifestyle and your sleep will be purer and more restorative.'
