I hate dreaming. Day dreaming sure, but not waking up then realizing you just had a dream. I actually thank God in the morning when I don’t dream, which is most of the time for the past years. Don’t know why I don’t like it, I just don’t.
So imagine my surprise when for one whole week, I always dreamt. And not just any dream – as in vivid, weird dreams I consider as nightmares. One was about my mom getting married again (she’s a senior citizen already) while another was about my ex and his ex.
Since I don’t usually dream, I thought of what I’ve done differently to have caused this. Only one thing came to mind: green tea.
That same week, I’ve decided to be more healthy replacing my coffee consumption with green tea. That meant I started drinking at least 4 cups of green tea per day. I googled it and was so freaked out by the results – I was not alone! Other people have also experienced this phenomenon though what they go through are lucid dreams.
Since I didn’t want to stop drinking tea because of its health benefits, I decided I would just lessen the concentration. Though I still normally drink about 4 cups of tea, I only use 2 tea bags for the whole day. Somehow it worked. My dreams lessened (or are gone altogether) though I still occasionally have some. I hope one day the dreams will all go away though.
Try it if it works for you and let me know.
