Psychology - Types of dreams

Types of dreams

A daydream [1] is an altered state of consciousness where there is a
change in brain wave patterns. The person is awake and experiences
thoughts, images and sensations that are usually positive and pleasant in
nature. The person has some control over daydreams and they have some
positive effects such as:

* a way of relieving anxiety

* helping to keep mentally alert

* helping to solve problems

* increasing creativity

A is also an altered state of consciousness. They may be positive or
negative and usually people have little control over their contents. Dreams
in REM sleep tend to be more emotional and story-like in quality compared
to dreaming in NREM sleep. NREM dreaming is more like thinking.

Lucid dreaming [2] is when a person is aware that they are dreaming and
is able to direct the action in the dream; the person has control over the
sequence of events in the dream. This has been used as a therapeutic
technique where the dreamer attempts to change the negative ending of the
dream to overcome a traumatic event.
