7 Things That Affect ➿ What You Dream about 💭 ...

Maybe you love having vivid dreams. Maybe you hate them. No matter how you feel about them, you should try to understand why you're having them. According to Good Housekeeping, these things affect what you dream about:

1. Smells

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If the smell of flowers hits you while you sleep, you'll have pleasant dreams. If you smell sulphur, you'll have nightmares. You might even dream about your breakfast if you smell the bacon cooking.

2. Sounds

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If a sound is high enough for you to hear, but low enough that it doesn't wake you up, you might dream about it. That's why you might not realize that your alarm is going off, because in your dream, it's the sound of a fire whistle.

3. Going to Bed Hungry

(Your reaction) Thank you!

"Low blood sugar can rouse you from sleep, meaning you may remember more dreams and those dreams may star a juicy burger or a piping-hot piece of pizza."

4. Sleeping on Your Stomach

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This is linked to having sexy dreams. So if you want to dream about making out with your crush, sleep on your stomach.

5. Watching Black-and-White TV Shows

(Your reaction) Thank you!

People who grew up in the black-and-white TV days tend to dream in black and white. Meanwhile, kids nowadays who are used to seeing color tend to dream in color.

6. Quitting Smoking

(Your reaction) Thank you!

For some reason, quitting smoking can cause vivid dreams. You'll probably end up dreaming about smoking, but that certainly isn't a sign to pick up another cigarette.

7. Antidepressants

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Nightmares can actually be a side effect of antidepressants. However, they affect each person differently.

Do you remember your dreams in the morning?
