Have you ever wondered why you dream? Do you want to know what the most common dreams are? Ibis Hotels have created an infographic that displays a variety of interesting facts that answer these questions and more.
One of the most common questions people have regarding dreams is “What are they?”. Of those surveyed, 60% of the people believe that dreams are simply thoughts from the day. Interestingly, 15% of people that some dreams may be premonitions of future events and 10% believe that some dreams may be deceased loved ones trying to communicate with us.
One in five people have let dreams influence their lives in a significant way. 18% of those surveyed have packed up and gone travelling based on their dreams and 15% have entered into relationships. Clearly dreams are important to many people.
Who do you normally dream about? It seems that 1 in 10 Brits dream about celebrities, which is perhaps a lot less than expected. Don’t worry if you happen to be having a dream about Colin Firth or Cheryl Cole; they topped the list of the most romantically dreamed about celebrities.
Dreams are great, but what about the not-so-fun nightmares? One in ten people will suffer from nightmares at least once a week and, one in five people if you’re under 24, but what is it that’s disturbing our sleep?
The most common nightmares involve being chased, with 40% of people having reported experiencing this. 29% of nightmares are where the person feels trapped, 27% where they’re lost and 22% are bad dreams where they’re trying to speak but unable to. If you’re concerned that you’ve had a dream that your partner is being unfaithful, then you can relax as it’s normal. 15% of dreams are of a lover cheating.
