The Situation: I keep having naked-in-public dreams: giving a presentation at work, at my high school reunion, and, weirdly, running into my landlord. (What’s
he doing there?) The Therapist Says: Naked dreams can be a sign of embarrassment or vulnerability, since we tend to associate nudity with exposure. Some dreams, like your landlord’s cameo, might just be random, but recurring ones can alert you to insecurities you might not have realised you had, so use them to tackle those feelings IRL. You could be nervous about an annual review coming up, or that your former peers at the reunion will see you as a failure. Jot down the details when you wake up; logging them will help you tease out the reasons behind the dreams. If they cause you stress or sleep loss, consult a therapist.
