    Dreams help you learn

    While studying for exams or learning a new task, you might want to consider sleeping early. This helps the mind to rehearse all that was learnt during the day, to make learning even more productive. Dreams are the brain’s way of processing, understanding and integrating information. It is also the benchmark to improve sleep quality.

    You can have multiple dreams in one night

    You do not have just one dream all night. There can be dozens and you may not remember them all when you wake up. A human generally dreams every 90 minutes with each cycle of dream being longer than the previous one.

    People who were not blind by birth see images in their dreams, and so do people who were born blind. In fact, the latter’s dreams are just as interesting and intense as any other person’s.

    Sleepwalkers

    Walking while asleep is a very rare and potentially risky sleep disorder. This kind of sleep disorder not only makes people act out their dream, but also makes them go on real adventures while they are still asleep.
