Have you been having strange dreams lately? Since Covid 19 struck it appears that the stress of lockdown and the fact that our sleep patterns have been disrupted has led to many people reporting bizarre dreams and nightmares. But some experts have argued that even when we are awake the pandemic is causing us to be anxious and fragile as a result of feeling that we are losing control over our lives and our futures. Such heightened emotional reactions are fertile grounds for negative thoughts.
For some of us negative thoughts are present regardless of the pandemic. For example, how often do past forgotten experiences suddenly pop into our head for no apparent reason?
How often do we let our day to day lives be affected by those thoughts?
How often does self confidence plummet when suddenly we remember a remark made by someone from our past?
Why do we let our thoughts and imagination act to sabotage any good intentions? Sometimes we are our own worst enemy.
