What It Means When You Dream About Being Naked In Public

You’re at the office and everything is normal, until you get up during a meeting to give a presentation and you realize you are totally naked.

It’s a dream many people have had, but experts still aren’t entirely sure what it means.

Most psychologists agree it probably doesn’t represent a literal desire to be naked in public, but more likely is related to being embarrassed about something about yourself that other people don’t know about you.

Other psychologists have suggested this type of dream comes from harboring feelings of guilt or inferiority, or it may be triggered by feeling neglected or deprived of attention in the past.

Of course some people think it means nothing at all. But neuroscientists and psychologists are convinced that, apart from meaning, dreams serve an important
role in maintaining our mental and emotional health.

Decades of research suggest that dreams help us make memories, solve the problems we struggle with in our waking hours and process emotions.

 

To Live Longer: You Should Eat 10 Portions of Fruit and Veggies

While five portions of fruit and veggies a day is good for you, eating 10 is dramatically better.

Researchers say eating above the five-a-day suggestion shows major benefit in reducing the chance of heart attack, stroke, cancer and early death.

The research team found that the greatest benefit comes from eating 800g a day, which is about ten portions.

Scarlett Johansson, Opens Up About Marriage Split, Says It’s “Not Natural” to Be Monogamous

Scarlett Johansson doesn’t think it’s ‘natural’ to be monogamous.

The 32-year-old actress shared her thoughts on marriage as she confirmed reports that she has split from her second husband, Romain Dauriac, with whom she has a two-year-old daughter Rose.

She told the new issue of Playboy, “I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it’s a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing. I don’t think it’s natural to be a monogamous person.”

She says, “I might be skewered for that, but I think it’s work. It’s a lot of work. And the fact that it is such work for so many people—for everyone—the fact of that proves that it is not a natural thing… It’s something I have a lot of respect for and have participated in, but I think it definitely goes against some instinct to look beyond.”
Scarlett was previously married to “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds, who is married to Blake Lively.

 

The Purpose of Sleep? To Forget

Sleep is used to cut down on memories, scientists now say. 

Throughout the day, neurons in the brain grow connections to store what we have learned.

But researchers found that during sleep, the neurons get rid of some of their connections with about one-third staying as they were.

They say this is a way the brain regulates itself to focus on what is important to retain.

Movie theaters are now serving alcohol to help boost profits during a time of failing attendance including special themed drinks based on specific movies.

During the past two years, 32 states have relaxed their liquor laws to allow theaters to serve alcohol in any auditorium instead of only designated areas.

New York is currently a dry state mostly because of lobbying by Broadway theaters which are allowed to serve alcohol, but the governor is trying open the alcohol market to movie theaters soon.

Employees at a Houston, Texas, daycare want parents to get off their phones and pay attention to their kids, so they posted a sign.

The sign read: “You are picking up your child! GET OFF YOUR PHONE!!!! Your child is happy to see you! Are you not happy to see your child?? We have seen children trying to hand their parents their work they completed and the parent is on the phone. We have heard a child say ‘Mommy, mommy, mommy…” and the parent is paying more attention to their phone than their own child. It is appalling. Get off your phone!!’

A parent took a photo of the sign and posted it on social media. It has gone viral.

One parent wasn’t happy about the sign and said: ‘Could it be that you’re self employed, dealing with clients, sorting out problems???? But no I’ll put down the phone, lose clients and the bills won’t get paid!!!!! You can look at the kids work when you get home!!!! Jeez some people are a special kind of stupid!!!!!’

Others took issue with the way the message was relayed, with some calling it rude.
