You can manage your Seasonal Affective Disorder
Have you ever dreamed about having sex with someone you don't actually fancy? I tackled this later today when my weekly iVillage UK Love Clinic goes live.
I've answered one woman's dilemma - she's freaked out about dreaming repeatedly of a manager she doesn't particularly like.
Our sleeping mind has a funny way of linking emotional needs with sexual needs - part of me thinks she needs more from this manager and her sleeping mind has twisted this a sexual need.
Definitely she shouldn't need to worry the way she has been that there's some significant meaning to it.
Call me paranoid but I didn't like hearing on BBC Radio 4 this morning about amateur scientists working with bio-matter - have to agree with a number of environment charities that this should be regulated. Very Frankenstein-ish!
TODAY’S TIP: Back to dreaming - if you've dreamt of having sex with someone you don't fancy [or maybe even don't like] it usually symbolises one of a few things:
1/ it's a love-hate thing so part of you is actually attracted to them [sometimes the, e.g., dominant boss we don't like we actually find attractive in a certain way]
2/ it's powerful emotions that have nothing to do with sex that just got mixed up in your dreams together with sexual imagery
3/ Maybe you actually want to control the person you don't like through sex in your dream. Or the reverse - your dream is telling you that you're being in control and it's using sexual imagery to give you this message. If you wake up feeling anxious this might well be the case.
Have a think about what could be at the heart of these dreams but there's nothing wrong with sex dreams and certainly don't worry about it if you have them!
Happy Wednesday, Pamx
My new book The Emotional Eater's Diet is published in the UK on May 15 - I’m very excited as I hope emotional eaters - women or men will find it helpful. Each year 2/3s of people start a diet and 20% start a new diet each month. Yet 95% of diets aren’t successful.
I firmly believe that emotional eating to soothe difficult feelings is the culprit behind most of this failure. My book has a huge range of practical tips/strategies to help understand your emotions and manage your appetite. There are mini-quizes and real case studies.
It’s available to preorder on Amazon. Please remember that food can fuel your energy needs but not your emotional needs. Take care!
