Night­mares are ac­tu­ally great

Good Housekeeping (Philippines) - - Your Body -

If you dream that your teeth fall out or your yaya quits (the hor­ror), here’s some­thing to give you peace of mind: Bad dreams are a sign that you’re creative, a re­cent study says. “Dur­ing a word-as­so­ci­a­tion test, night­mare suf­fer­ers came up with less ob­vi­ous answers than the aver­age per­son might. This abil­ity to make broad con­nec­tions is a big part of creative think­ing,” ex­plains co–study au­thor Michelle Carr, a re­searcher at the Univer­sity of Mon­treal’s Dream and Night­mare Lab­o­ra­tory. Who needs sweet dreams when you can have smart ones?

Had a bad dream? Stud­ies say it’s a sign of cre­ativ­ity.
