Lack of sleep and dreaming (tafsir al ahlam)
Dreaming is a natural part of our life, everyone dreams while they sleep, and the quality of sleep affects the quality of dreams, as it does not always have a great impact on your sleep cycle, which means that it will not change the amount of time you spend. You spend at each stage of sleep or the number of times you wake up. What they can change, how long it takes to fall asleep and how easy or difficult it is for your mind to transition between stages of sleep, which may or may not make you feel rested.
Most people often dream about things related to what is happening in their daily life, and dream interpretation, or recently called tafsir al ahlam, will help find the link between our dreams and our daily life. If you have a lot of fun in your daily life, then you may have more pleasant dreams. In contrast, if you feel depressed and sad during the day, then you may have more bad dreams or even nightmares and a poor quality sleep at night.
Why Do We Sleep?
Three important factors determine when we fall asleep:
The sleep-wake cycle is set to approximately 24-hour and is referred to as the circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythms control sleep and wakefulness from physiological responses such as temperature, control of our bodies, mental responses such as falling asleep and waking and controlling the duration of our dreams. This rhythm is caused by some rhythmic activity of the inner brain.
On average, a a person sleeps about a third of his life. Sounds like a waste of time? exactly the contrary! You might not realize it, but your body, in fact, works hard while you are in dreamland.
The World of Dreams
Everyone dreams that it is an undeniable reality. People who have woken up from REM sleep experiences say they have been dreaming about 90% of the time. REM dreams are more lucid and clear, in contrast to NREM dreams. According to Freud, REM dreams are like a thought process that is often unrealistic and emotional.
According to Freud, we dream of satisfying unconscious desires or wishes, especially those involving sex and aggression. If we are to fulfill these desires during the day, that will be a great concern. Freud stated that desires are represented by symbols. Based on this theory, a therapist should interpret these symbols and use tafsir al ahlam to help clients discover these desires.
Sleep deprivation When we are deprived of our quality sleep, we fall asleep earlier and sleep longer, but there are no physical or mental changes. Sleep deprivation can affect task performance.
The implications of sleep deprivation on multiple sectors of the workforce. It can lead to a decrease in a person's ability to perform their functions efficiently; It can have tragic consequences for motorists or industrial workers. People who are forced to work shifts and fall asleep at unusual times may develop a chronic accumulated lack of sleep. It also has effects Insufficient sleep concerns the military because of soldiers.
Sometimes their circumstances force them to settle for a little sleepover long periods.
This may detract from their ability to carry out orders, and from their ability to properly assess positions and take decisions, and it generally reduces their motivation and enthusiasm.
Sleep deprivation as a treatment for depression
Depression is one of the most serious mental illnesses. In depressed patients, feelings of despair and sin prevail over a typical frequency. In serious cases of depression, the patient does not have the desire or ability to act on his own because everything seems to them to be meaningless and very useless.
Many of those patients whose depression reaches a severe and dangerous extent seems to them that life is useless.
Sleep disturbances are often the first symptom in depression. The sleep of depressed patients is shallow, and they wake up often during the night. Early morning insomnia is a frequent type of depressive sleep disorder.
Therefore, it is surprising that total deprivation of this disturbed sleep actually leads to a definite improvement in many conditions of depression.
Why we sleep
The need to sleep as all people know grows stronger, the longer we are awake. A person who has not slept for a long time has only to sit down to find himself having fallen asleep immediately, and after starting to sleep, "The sleep pressure" decreases incrementally.
Sleep is deep at first but becomes more shallow as the hours elapse.
Some scientists have found an association between physical activity and deep sleep.
