What are our dreams like?

We’ve all been there – caught up in the middle of a fantastic dream that feels so real you think you've actually experienced it! Maybe your dream was about people you love or it was about places you wish to visit? It could also be your private fantasies or deepest fears.... No matter what it was: dreaming always gives you ideas.

You will be surprised to know that our brain is very active while sleeping. When we  dream it is working the same as it is when we are awake. We dream during the R.E.M. stage of sleep. This is the deepest stage of the sleep cycle: your eyes are moving quickly, your heart rate and breathing both become inconsistent. Usually, this sleeping
stage lasts for around 30 minutes and during this time, our body experiences dreaming activity. As you see, dreams are not very long... Probably that amazing one you had last week only lasted for a couple of minutes even if it felt like all night!

What are dreams exactly? They are images, thoughts, sounds and sensations we experience while sleeping. Good dreams make you feel inspired, happy and you enjoy every moment of an adventure. That’s the time when you fantasize without being judged or afraid of making mistakes. Your imagination has the power to create dreams and
therefore more chance to get only good ones ...with a help of a dream catcher. The Native Americans believe hanging a dream catcher around your sleeping area protects you from nightmares and helps good dreams reach you... Nightmares are caught by the net and beads, while good ones travel through the dream catcher's long strings to the feathers.

Scientists say dreaming can help you learn and develop long-term memories. A good 7.5 hrs sleep makes you more healthy, happy and productive. A person who had sweet dreams while they were sleeping has ten times the chance to have more luck the next day, just because he/she has a positive attitude!

As you know a good day always starts with good dreams... What if a dream catcher will help you to catch them?
