Follow your dreams

Do you know what you want to be? To truly live, is to follow your heart, to realise that you can achieve your dreams.

Expanding horizons

Tailoring learning to each individual student is the goal of innovative schools the world over but that challenge is nowhere greater than in those for pupils with severe and complex learning difficulties.

When we sleep our bodies may be at rest, but our brains are still at work. This is when we dream.

Whether you remember your dreams or not, we all dream every night during the deepest level of sleep, called Rapid Eye Movement (Rem). With 95 per cent of all thought being unconscious, dreaming uses up more of our brains than you think.

Dreams make life more interesting

Is life is about practical things or dreaming? Some people say life is about practical things because you need to earn money to live. But others say life is for dreaming because dreams can provide motivation for us to live.

In my opinion, life is both of them and we cannot live without either.

Two for the Road

(The Perfect Kiss)

It's hard to take this set seriously. A 'soundtrack' for an imaginary movie, it is Marc Collin's latest offbeat musical idea that is innovative, absurd and tongue in cheek. At least one hopes it was partly a warped sense of humour that had him creating a narrative for the 12 original tracks.

The definition of 'young'

What makes someone young? A young age? A young face? Or a youthful heart?

In my opinion, I think 'young' does not just describe children and teenagers. It refers to anyone who has a dream.

If you have a dream and you are trying to achieve it, no matter how old you are, I think you are young.

Never stop dreaming - your dreams will come true

Just because people stop being teenagers doesn't mean they should stop having dreams.

When we are children, most of our dreams are naive.

When we are teenagers, dreams are more realistic.

As adults, it is hard to dream of a great change in our lives.

But dreams like making more money and raising our children still exist.

Believe in miracles and never give up on dreams

When I was young, my primary teacher told me: 'No pain, no gain.'

I didn't really understand what he meant. When we were children, we had many dreams. Some of us wanted to be teachers, some wanted to be police officers. But some have now changed their minds. They have to find a job and give up their dreams.

Dream messages

You might not have dreams as dramatic as A Nightmare On Elm Street. But when it comes to dreams, everybody has a mystical experience to share.

Some say they have foreseen the future in their dreams. Others have recurring dreams with bizarre themes - such as losing one's teeth or being chased by animals.

Dream therapy

EVERYBODY DREAMS. That's a fact. You might not remember your dreams when you wake up, but with a little encouragement and practise, you will soon have your subconscious delivering an interesting assortment and leaving sweet reminders on your pillow.

Altered states

YOU WAKE SUDDENLY in the night. Your eyes jolt open in the dark and cold sweat clings to your brow. In a few moments you relax, realising it was just a nightmare or some weird, vivid dream. Either way, your nocturnal narrations appear frighteningly real.

Ask Mr Brain...all will be explained

Do animals dream?

According to electroencephalograph recordings of sleep states in animals, it is possible to believe that some animals dream.

Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep, the 'dreaming sleep', has been reported in most studied mammals, for example, rats, cats, monkeys, elephants and birds.

Ask mr Brain...all will be explained

Why do we have nightmares? MARGHERITA Nightmares are disturbing dreams that cause the dreamer to wake up. They are often accompanied by feelings of fear and anxiety.

It is quite common for children between the ages of three and eight to have nightmares. Adults tend to have nightmares only occasionally.
