The New World of Dream Analysis: Good Dreams, What They Mean, and How to Have Them

New Year, New Sheets, New Dreams, New You

Life hack: never skimp on good sheets. That’s how I justify my new Brooklinen Sheet Sets anyway …


The principle still stands. It’s common wisdom that — unless you’re counting every penny — splurging on the small stuff that goes between you and the ground: shoes, bed sets, sheets are worth investing in. After all, you use them every day and every night. So the quality of your sheets will affect your life — even if you don’t realize it.

The little things affect our sleep without us even knowing. Some we can help such as making our environment more peaceful and rest-conducive, or cutting down on screen time by keeping our phones out of our bedrooms. But every part of our lifestyle affects our sleep, and can even seep into our dreams. So, it’s no surprise that — after spending close to two year with minimal stimuli — people are learning to decode their dreams.

We’re still in a pre-metaverse, so we can’t yet access the VR world Zuckerberg promises. For now, all we have is our dreams. And people are turning to the internet to decode them.

The Reddit community r/dreams has amassed a cult-like following where people describe their dreams and professional “dreamworkers” analyze them. People share their stories, bond over similar dreams, and revel in their peers’ dreamworlds.

Some interpretations pull directly from Freudian dream analysis, others offer psychological theories, and some merely speculate. However, this isn’t the only forum for those seeking communities to confer with about their dream landscapes. With apps on the market filled with like-minded communities, Facebook groups, and therapist-led groups, dream science is increasingly in demand each day.

In a recent article in The Guardian, professional dreamworker Jason DeBord explains this phenomenon of dream analysis, and weighs why it might be a good idea. The Guardian asserts: “humanity might fare somewhat better if we all took a moment each morning to share our dreams from the night before.”

While establishing habits like dream journaling and sharing dreams with our friends can help us track our moods, the key to elevating the quality of our dreams is better sleep.

That’s where Brooklinen comes in.
