If you dream that you are wearing armor it should be interpreted as the way you defend yourself from external influence. You fear getting hurt and therefore, you protect yourself, hiding your feelings. Armor can also symbolize strength and resistance against adversity. This is not always positive because in these cases the dreamer is often too enclosed in her own shell. It is likely that an individual with armor or shield is incapable of spontaneous interaction with people. In dreams, both protections are symbols that demonstrate anxiety. You must ask yourself what is it you want to defend yourself from. If you question your motives a little, you may discover you do not need to be so sheltered. With a little self-confidence and trust you can overcome it. In the case the armor refers to something that you will face in real life, it means that you are brave and well prepared. If you dream of carrying heavy armor it means you are taking life too seriously, without enjoying it. Those who believe in reincarnation interpret it as a vestige of past lives. If historical facts are revealed during the dream it will be interesting to prove their authenticity. Perhaps, you are remembering facts from your ancestral past . . .
Keep stress at bay
Your cardiovascular health will likely to suffer when you deprive yourself to sleep. Sleeping can surely reduce the levels of stress you're going through and with that, you could have a much better control of your blood pressure. Not having enough of sleep will also affect the levels of your cholesterol, which plays a significant role in heart disease.
Improving memory can be done in a number of ways, and one of those is by having a good night's sleep. During sleep, your mind is still busy and going through the process of consolidation, where it strengthen your memories as well as the "practice" skills, which you have learned while you're awake. According to the associate professor at NYU Langone Medical Center, Dr. Rapoport says that something happens while we are all sleeping, and it helps us learn things better. Thus, if you're trying something new, you can perform it better right after you sleep.
