Why are we having weird lockdown dreams?

So it turns out that there is a combination of factors that is giving us vivid dreams. Dreams are a fundamental . aspect of the way we process emotion, and due to the stress of Covid-19, emotions are running pretty high for everyone RN.

The change of pace for many of us could also have an affect on our dreams. As many of us are working from home or furloughed, we have removed the daily distractions and interactions, meaning that our brain is channelling more emotion, rather than processing your daily activities.

These two factors combined with the fact that we are likely to remember intense, stressful or bizarre dreams more clearly, leads us to waking up every morning thinking WTF.

Decoding your lockdown dreams and nightmares

We asked you guys to submit your weird dreams on Instagram to help you figure out what they mean. Scroll down below to see if we have included your dream.

Losing your teeth

Dreaming that your teeth are falling out or crumbling is common when you feel out of control. Makes a lot of sense in the current lockdown climate!

Losing loved ones

Losing a loved one in your dream can be interpreted in a number of ways, including missing them in real life or a worrying about their health. Given everything going on, these fears are very understandable.


Don’t panic, these dreams aren’t a prophecy, it isn’t you body trying to tell you something. Pregnancy dreams usually mean that something new is happening in your life, whether that’s a new job, a new emotion or a new relationship and it’s just your brain’s way of processing it.

Burning buildings

Despite this dream being distressing, it is often a good sign. If you dream that your house or a a familiar building is burning down, this suggests that you are thinking about new starts. Maybe you are thinking forward to when lockdown ends?

Being robbed

Dreaming about being burgled, robbed or mugged is a common side effect of feeling out of control. It can represent you being robbed of power happiness and independence.

If you’re gonna have weird dreams, at least look good whilst doing it… Treat yourself to a new pair of pyjamas or nightwear. After all, lockdown is the perfect excuse for a PJ day.
