Daylight Saving Time and the Broken Dreams

Fig 01- Daylight Saving Time.

Dark purple viola flowers cherish the days. The weather is getting warmer. The day becomes longer. These are some signs that the spring is appearing.

Do not waste the daylight, save it.

Sunday, March 14th, at 2.00 am, daylight saving time will begin here, so on the 14th, an hour forward.

When the clock changes, especially an hour forward, it alters our equilibrium life. For example, our sleep cycles and progress dreams.

Usually, we pass through four or five complete sleep cycle pernight, four stages of NREM sleep and a period of REM sleep per cycle.

Due to the clock goes an hour forward, it cuts this cycles.

Our dreams take place during both NREM and REM sleep.

The scientists mentioned dreams in REM sleep are more vivid and elaborate, and Kyger, et al (2011) believed that these dreams are functionally important to learning, memory processing, and adaptation to stress.

REM dreams breakthrough in content throughout the night. The dreams could about the current concerns, daily events, conversations and emotional experiences, childhood or other events in the past, and vague futures.

It could be true that personality influences the quality of dreams. Many depressed people dream of helplessness, broken dreams. Some of people in some times fear about their bizarre dreams.

The dreams also able to delete wild fantasies. Some of us believe that dreams are symbolic signs for something.

But, many people have never aware about their dreams, or not able to recall their dreams, or totally forget about their dreams when they just awoke.

Talking about dreams and broken dreams, here, I would like to share a video by Green Day from the album American Idiot:

 “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams” 

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating..… ….Check my vital signs To know I'm still alive, and I walk alone I walk alone, I walk alone...”

Conclusively, the event of an hour forward can disturb our sleep cycles and dreams, and it can cause decrease alertness, inability to concentrate, and slowed reaction. Just be alert during doing activities in the day, drive safely, watch the beating of heart, check the vital signs, and Happy Spring!

Do you know that song? Are you concerned about your dreams?

    We don't have daylight savings here at all in this state, although it does make it confusing with working when we have people in other states and we have to remember if they have daylight saving time, haha!

  12. This is the difficult time change where we lose an hour. I dream more now that I wear a CPAP sleep mask at night to treat my sleep anpea. It is a good thing.

  13. Beautiful purple flowers .. Boulevard of broken dreams is also one of my favourite. The music video is also interesting. Dark, gloomy, but outstanding!

    I like the flowers very much.

  21. Lovely flowers. I really don't cope well with the clocks changing!

  22. I usually pay attention to my sleeping habits as sleep is of utmost importance to our well-being. I'm not a great 'dreamer', but I find your information on dreams quite interesting.

  23. Es que estamos integrados a la naturaleza mucho más de lo que pensamos, somos naturaleza



  24. Muy interesante tu informacion, por cierto, me encanta el reloj que nos muestras. Un beso y feliz fin de semana 💋💋💋

  25. Me regalaron por Navidad, un reloj, que mide la cantidad de pasos y controla los distintos ejercicios que haces a lo largo del día. Entre otras cosas también te mide la calidad de tu sueño.

  26. Io non sono affatto preoccupata dell'ora legale perché non ho alcuna difficoltà ad addormentarmi... Ovunque mi trovo.

  27. I do not like daylight savings. I think we should just leave and not have it and let nature takes its course. It is too hard on the body and sleep cycle.

  29. Thanks for the reminder, Evi! I love that watch!

  30. Hay personas que no recuerdan los sueños, yo sí a veces son angustiantes. Besos.

  31. Everything related to dreams is very interesting.
    There are days that I don't remember any and others I remember all day...
    The song is one of those that does not go out of style.

  32. Lately I've been having a lot of dreams and I can tell time changed because I feel so tired this morning.

  37. Si, ya mismo adelantamos la hora y la primavera ya esta por llegar con sus flores tan bonitas, tus violetas están preciosas.
    Evi yo suelo soñar mucho y algumas veces me acuerdo perfectamente de lo que soñe otras no.
    Un beso y buena semana.

  38. En Europa el cambio de horario de invierno a verano es el ultimo fin de semana de mazo y al inversa el ultimo de octubre, si que se llevan años diciendo que será el ultimo pero así seguimos.
