5. Body Paralysis
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is a normal stage of sleep characterized by rapid movements

of the eyes. REM sleep in adult humans typically occupies 20-25% of total sleep, about

90-120 minutes of a night’s sleep.

6.During REM sleep the body is paralyzed by a mechanism in the brain in order to prevent the

movements which occur in the dream from causing the physical body to move. However, it is

possible for this mechanism to be triggered before, during, or after normal sleep while the

brain awakens.

7. Not Everybody Dreams in Color
A full 12% of sighted people dream exclusively in black and white. The remaining number

dream in full color. Studies from 1915 through to the 1950s maintained that the majority of

dreams were in black and white, but these results began to change in the 1960s. Today, only

4.4% of the dreams of under-25 year-olds are in black and white. Recent research has

suggested that those changing results may be linked to the switch from black-and-white film

and TV to color media.

Day dreaming is classified as a level of consciousness between sleep and wakefulness. It

occurs during our waking hours when we let our imagination carry us away. As our minds begin

to wander and our level of awareness decreases, we lose ourselves in our imagined scenario

and fantasy. Click here for a more in depth look at daydreams.


A nightmare is a disturbing dream that causes the dreamer to wake up feeling anxious and

frightened. Nightmares may be a response to real life trauma and situations. These type of

nightmares fall under a special category called Post-traumatic stress nightmare (PSN).

Nightmares may also occur because we have ignored or refused to accept a particular life

situation. Research shows that most people who have regular nightmares have had a family

history of psychiatric problems, bad drug experiences, people who have contemplated suicide,

and/or rocky relationships. Nightmares are an indication of a fear that needs to be

acknowledged and confronted. It is a way for our subconscious to make up take notice.
