Six Things you didn’t know about Dreams

It is said that dreams come true. We still can’t agree if this is true as dreams encompass different experiences during slumber time. When sleeping, the brain experiences changes which are caused by certain factors which are yet to be clearly known. Many experts have researched about dreams to no avail with only minuscule evidence to show.

Sleep is usually defined as a means of processing, sorting and storing every daily event. This definition is backed up by manifold research about sleep. A doctorate researcher by the name Rubin Naiman found out that the brain swallows metaphorically at night digesting and sifting all the information it acquired during the day and eventually gets rid of it. The information which remains in the brain then makes a person become who he or she is. Apart from this popular researches, there is still sundry of facts unknown to many of you. The various less familiar facts and myths concerning dreams include;

1.   We dream the entire night.

Many people commonly associate dreaming to occur during moments of fast eye movement. This is not true as everybody keeps dreaming the entire time he or she is asleep. On the contrary, if you don’t see or experience a dream does not mean you are not dreaming.

2.   It is impossible to recall a dream if an alarm wakes you.

The traumatizing effect of a loud alarm wakes you up immediately in a new world makes you lose the remembrance of the world you were a couple of seconds before. If you want to remember vividly your dreams, you should allow your body to wake up with ease for a period of time in order to adjust slowly to the new world.

3.   If you can remember your dream, you will demonstrate deviating brain activities.

Research shows that the temporo-parietal junction within the brain has many spontaneous activities among dreamers who often remember their dreams. Studies also demonstrate that if you recall your dream you will be at a high affinity to make sounds while sleeping.

4.   People dream in real time.

Dreams occur for a long time i.e. half an hour or a full hour. They lengthen with the progressing of the night.

5.   Fear is not always associated with nightmares.

Nightmares do not portray fear every time but also limn confusion, worry, sadness, guilt, and failure.
