Prayer to Help Cope With Depression
First of all I want to just do a quick check to see if everyone is happy with how the site is functioning. Are you getting your email notices of posts? Are you able to log-in okay? Are you experiencing any difficulties? If there are any tech issues let me know.
I just wrote a piece for our anxiety site about fears and anxieties in dreams and what they might mean. I have always had a fascination with dreams. We spend so much of our time sleeping and I like to think that this time is important. Our dreams can reveal a lot about what we are thinking and feeling about issues in our waking life. I tend to feel more creative after dreaming. It awakens that free association center where there are no hindrances to thinking outside the box. I also think that dreams can help us to problem solve and to work out solutions to challenges in our real life. If you are in therapy, talking about your dreams can sometimes be helpful in exploring new depths to your pyschological growth.
My question for you today is: Is there a dream you remember having where you can share the details and images? What do you think your dream meant? Do you think there is any merit to writing down your dreams or exploring their meaning?
To read more about dreams and sleep in general you might want to stop by our Sleep site where sleep expert Florence Cardinal writes about Dreams from A to Zuni.
And now for something completely different...
Do you use a laptop? Is it on your lap right now? I do use a laptop and I can tell you that I spend sometimes more than several hours a day with my computer perched on my lap and in the warm temps...my skin is exposed. I may have to rethink this.
Just wrote an article about cases where people using laptops on their laps for extended periods may be risking having "toasted" skin. You can read all about it here in my post entitled, Laptop Computers and Toasted Skin Syndrome.
I hope you all are doing well. I will be by shortly to comment and answer questions. Thank you for being a part of this site. Looking forward to reading your comments.
