Some interesting facts about dreams and dreams. Experts named facts about dreams that will be not only interesting, but also useful.
Each of us sleeps at some time, and at some time in our lives we must have had dreams. However, the world of dreams is beyond our control, dreams do not give answers to our questions, and even if they do, we do not know how to recognize and use it. And in general - what happens to us when we sleep? Experts named 8 facts about dreams, which we suggest you familiarize yourself with.
1. Sleep promotes the assimilation of new information
If you need to remember important information when preparing for exams, or an important presentation, then you should definitely go to bed, and not at all “ cramming" all night, as is customary. And not because the very method that was mentioned in the film "Big Change" works: a person is sleeping, and information is being postponed, no.
This is due to the activity of the brain during sleep, because it is during sleep that problems are solved, information is processed, the processes of understanding and acceptance take place.
In order to facilitate this process in action, as well as sleep through the night, experts recommend avoiding noise in the bedroom, as well as electronic devices, because they affect both the quality of sleep and its duration.
2. Not only men, but also women experience orgasms in a dream
As experts have found out, men experience orgasms not only in erotic dreams, but also in a special phase of sleep, which happens several times during the entire duration of sleep during the night.
The same is true for women who seem to experience orgasm while sleeping. It can also be caused not only by sleep or some external stimulation, but simply by the fact that the body, in response to certain phases of sleep, can experience erotic climaxes for no apparent reason.
3. The most common dream: your partner is cheating on you
Experts say that the dream in which your partner is cheating on you is the most common. This is confirmed by a study in which more than 5,000 people took part, showing that at least half of them regularly dream about this nightmare.
Experts believe, explaining this phenomenon, that the reason for this dream is not at all low self-esteem of the second partner, and not distrust of a loved one, but a natural human instinct of fear of loneliness and fear of being underestimated.
4. Every night we have a huge number of dreams
Despite the popular opinion of many that they did not dream, they simply do not remember them. People have so many dreams at night that they simply forget them.
A person dreams every night for ninety minutes, and each subsequent dream is longer than the previous one. For example, the first dream you had after you went to bed might only be five minutes long, while the last one, the one that lasted until you woke up, might take several hours.
Thus, a person "sees" more than 10,000 dreams in his life.
5. We are able to watch a dream
Almost every one of us has experienced a feeling when we really want to linger in a dream after waking up, and, as it turns out, a dream can really be extended.
To do this, experts recommend continuing to sleep peacefully without muscle movement, as a result, a post-sleep phase will occur, which will allow sleep to continue for a couple of minutes.
Conversely, by moving and opening your eyes, changing the position in which you lay, you lose touch with the dream and with what you saw in the dream.
6. If the dream is recurring, it means that they "want to tell" something important to you
To get rid of the painful repetition of the nightmare, experts recommend thinking about possible problems in your life or about an unresolved situation that worries you every day.
For example, a common dream of knocked out or falling out teeth symbolizes the human ability to communicate and communicate with other people.
Thus, in a dream, your mind informs you about the possibility of improving communication with peers.
7. Dreams can be seen in reality
You can dream not only during sleep, but also in a conscious state. Often, it is recommended as a relaxation tool to reduce nervousness and anxiety.
To dream awake, experts recommend focusing only on pleasant pictures, daydreams or dreams and thinking about it for a long time. Thus, the brain will be able to return the body to the state it has already experienced while awake
8. Dreams can be controlled
According to a recent survey in which 3000 people, about 65 percent of those surveyed found that during sleep they are aware of their dreams and are able to influence the outcome of their sleep.
Not everyone has these abilities, but they can be developed and developed. Thus, you will free yourself from regular nightmares and significantly improve the quality of sleep, and the activity of the central nervous system, experts say.
