Men's dreams and their meanings

(Thinkstock photo)



Researchers recently identified the five most common man-dreams. We asked Gillian Holloway, PhD, author of The Complete Dream Book, for her expert take.


1. Intimacy
If he dream-cheats on you with another woman, it's because he's attracted to one of her nonphysical qualities, like her ambition or quick wit. And if he dreams about a fictional person he's never met, pay attention to the particular sexy adventure. That's what he really wants to do--but with you.

2. Being Chased
He's feeling pressured by something, but that doesn't mean he's necessarily running away from it. The pursuer could be a symbol for something that motivates him and is merely pushing him in a certain direction.

3. Falling
He is overwhelmed and feels out of control, either at work or in his personal life.

4. Studying for a Test
Surprisingly, this dream becomes more frequent once guys have graduated and entered the workforce, and it's a sign of perfectionism. "It's usually a high-achiever's dream," says Holloway.

5. Being Late for an Event
He's not actually concerned about being tardy for the party. Rather, he feels like everyone is a step ahead of him, and he's insecure about it.

Jog - Jogging, and other high intensity exercise, is extremely useful for sleeping. First, jogging fights anxiety by burning away stress hormones and increasing production of endorphins, which act as natural relaxants. Second, jogging tires muscles, which can essentially convince your body to make you sleep. Daily jogging, especially after work, can be highly effective.

    Ford plants a new Mustang on the Empire State Building in style

    Fifty years ago this week, Ford made history by staging the greatest car launch in history — building up the drama around its new Mustang with stunts like papering over dealership windows and landing on the covers of both Time and Newsweek magazine. To celebrate its anniversary, Ford re-created a stunt it last pulled off in 1965 — landing a new Mustang on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building.

    All-new 2015 Toyota Camry becomes an edgier appliance

    Toyota finds itself in a tricky situation. Those that enjoy cars as more than a simple means of transportation think of the Camry as a bland spongecake gone stale. And yet it's been the best-selling vehicle in the entire industry for the past 12 years, with a car rolling off the production line every 65 seconds. So how do you add flavor to your insipid dish without alienating your loyal -- and vast -- customer base? Enter the 2015 Camry: Toyota's attempt to engage enthusiasts while appeasing to those that think a turbo is nothing but make-believe snail.

    New Hyundai Sonata grows into a large contender

    So it’s taken a while, but Hyundai is in the big leagues now. There is rife evidence of this in its sales numbers, reliability ratings and white paper indices, but the most telling indicator to us, perhaps, is that Hyundai no longer feels the need to overdesign or mimic other automobile designs as if to say, “Look, we can build good cars, too! They look just like these other nice ones!”

    One dead as S. Korea ferry with 476 passengers sinks

    South Korea's coastguard said Wednesday one person had been killed as it struggled to rescue 476 people -- mostly high school students -- aboard a ferry that ran aground and sank off the southern coast. "The ferry is almost completely submerged," Lee said, adding that a detachment of South Korean Navy SEALS were taking part in the rescue. Of the 450 passengers on board the ferry bound for the southern resort island of Jeju, 325 were students from a high school in Ansan, south of Seoul. The 6,825-tonne ferry, which had sailed out of the western port of Incheon on Tuesday evening, ran into trouble some 20 kilometres (13 miles) off the island of Byungpoong.

Today, Chevy revealed the version of the Trax it will bring to the United States, for those less well-heeled buyers who want the shape of an SUV without the window sticker they usually carry. …
