During the holidays, we are expected to project a happy, positive image to the world, but that may not always be how we are feeling inside. Often times, dreams are our only outlet to process those inner anxieties.

Thanksgiving may be most associated with turkeys, harvest wreaths and family gatherings, but they can also be a time of tension and anxiety that can manifest itself negatively in our dreams, according to DreamsCloud, the most comprehensive resource on dreams and dreaming on the web, mobile and social media.

“It’s not a surprise that such seemingly negative dreams are increasing at this time of year,” said Susan Baragia, a member of DreamsCloud’s experienced team of dream workers, who provide professional dream analysis to the site’s users. “During the holidays, we are expected to project a happy, positive image to the world, but that may not always be how we are feeling inside. Often times, dreams are our only outlet to process those inner anxieties.”

Dreams about falling uncontrollably, missing a flight or job interview, and even losing your Smartphone are some common anxiety-based dream symbols among users at DreamsCloud.com. Whether you’re hosting the in-laws this year, juggling work, school and holiday schedules, or struggling to come up with the perfect gifts, dreams can often reflect hidden tension.

DreamsCloud has seen user activity increase more than 300% since the beginning of November, both online and through its mobile apps for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone 8 devices.

Baragia added that anxiety-laden dreams serve an important purpose year-round, but especially during the holidays, when expectations can feel higher.

“There is a lot of pressure to make everything perfect for the holidays, and if we display that tension during our waking life, there can be some negative consequences,” Baragia said. “During dreams, our minds can release and process those concerns. Therefore, having a deeper understanding of our dreams and what they are trying to tell us can allow the dreamer to focus more on the positive aspects of the holidays.”

“Journaling our dreams, along with seeking professional reflections, can help us to better identify, understand and accept the stressful side of the holidays, leading to greater enjoyment and satisfaction during the holiday season,” Baragia added.
