 You must have had sweet dreams while sleeping. Once you wake up, you will feel happier and more enthusiastic about carrying out activities because of the beautiful dream. In fact, not infrequently, you try to sleep longer so that sweet dreams can continue.

The good news is that there are things you can do to have sweet dreams every night, you know! According to Lauri Loewenberg who is a dream analyst to Well and Good, there are several ways to control dreams that allow a person to experience sweet dreams.

Because nightmares can interfere with sleep, it's important to learn how to have good dreams. Come on, find out the secret below!

Pay Attention to Content Consumed Before Sleeping

One activity that seems common before bed is to open various social media. Agree? It turns out, the content you consume before bed has an impact on your dreams, you know!

Dr. Michael J. Breus, a sleep doctor, advises not interacting with negative content about 90 minutes before bedtime. The reason is, the brain needs a lot of time to process information that can lower mood.

"If you watch disturbing (negative) content before going to bed, you may be dreaming about that content," he says.

Meanwhile, according to Loewenberg, humans tend to dream of what they think most often. And generally, what you think about most often appears when you want to sleep.

Record Dreams

Writing dreams in a dream journal can help you to decipher what the dream is actually trying to convey. Annie Armstrong Miyao, a psychotherapist, recommends jotting down dreams as a strategy for getting sweet dreams.

When you keep a dream journal from time to time, you can identify patterns in dreams. From there, you can find instructions on how to have beautiful dreams and pay attention to the causes of these beautiful dreams.

Avoid Consumption of Caffeine After Noon

One of the other tips for having sweet dreams is to avoid consuming caffeine after noon. According to Dr. Breus, caffeine will make you experience a phase of chicken sleep or light sleep, where the body and mind are on the threshold between reality and the subconscious. As a result, you will wake up more easily.

In addition, this phase can also cause less REM (Rapid Eye Movement), which is where dreams often occur. So, consider eating foods that can increase energy rather than consuming caffeine during the day.

Set Meal Time Before Bed

Loewenberg advises not eating at all about two hours before bedtime. Because, this can be one of the emergence of nightmares.

"If you eat something very heavy and very sweet, it will most likely cause nightmares," he added. Besides not being good for health, foods such as donuts, cupcakes, or cookies are also not recommended if you want to have sweet dreams.

But if you feel very hungry even though it's close to bedtime, you also shouldn't force yourself not to eat. Instead of sugary foods, you can eat vegetables or salads so that the digestive system can have enough time to process them.

Those are some tips that you can apply to get sweet dreams while sleeping. Interested in trying?
