“So what constellations did you see this time, Thomas?” asked their father. “All the usual ones. But it’s weird. I could swear that the Cat moved, ‘cause now it’s twining around the base of the Flower.” When his parents shooed Thomas into bed, he peered into his telescope for one last look. The Cat was still there, curled up around his Flower.
Shows how if people got a little more sleep, it can stop a lot of little mistake that happen in everyday life. From getting impatient with the kids, overeating, and making mistakes at the work. These are all probably people have from not getting enough rest at night. The survey illustrates how being sleepy during the day it interferes with their activities during the day at least a couple of times a month.
Firstly, why do we need sleep? Our body’s need sleep because of exhaustion that we have throughout the day which requires the body to restore and repair itself during the unconscious stage of sleep to regain energy this is called the repair theory. People usually say they have never dreamt in their whole life when they probably do every night, it’s because the moment they wake up they start to slowly forget their dreams and becomes difficult for them to recall it. Dreams usually occur when stressed or worried about something and having thoughts about one thing all day. People usually remember dreams when they really want to remember them or they dreamt about something that made them happy and it sticks to their memory all day.
It will take a shaking motion to wake you and you wont be happy about it. Sleep walkers and talkers walk and talk at this point. This process takes about 90 minutes then reverses(1-2-3-4-3-2-1). After you come back to one, instead of waking you go into REM(Rapid Eye Movement) sleep and this is were most dreaming occurs. The amount of time in REM sleep is usually random, but after REM sleep you start the process over again.
Sleep and Dreams Sleep is a behavioral state characterized by little physical activity and almost no awareness of the outside world. Sleep is actually made up of two separate and distinctly different states called REM sleep (rapid eye movement) and NREM sleep (non-rapid eye movement). With NREM sleep it is further divided into stage 1-4 based on the size and the speed of the brain waves. Step one is the stage when you drift off to sleep or doze off. For example people doze off in class because you are bored and have nothing to do but listen to the teacher talk.
A dream, as defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary (2014), is a series of thoughts, visions, or feelings that happen during sleep. For years, psychologists and other researchers have been trying to decipher and interpret the meaning of dreams. When we sleep, we go through five different stages of sleep. The average dream occurs in REM sleep, or the fifth and final sleep stage (McEntarffer & Weseley 2012). Some common dreams are having one’s teeth fall out, being chased, or being back at school.
On most nights I do homework before I fall asleep and homework is very stressful and tends to make me overthink everything. When I am stressed I do not sleep well and this sleep study supported that. Some nights I would take Emergan-Zzzz which is a sleep aid that has melatonin in it, which helps relax me and helps me fall asleep, but does not determine how well I end up sleeping. That is one thing that really surprised me throughout this sleep project. Melatonin helps me fall asleep, but does not help me sleep any better because I did not wake up very refreshed most night that I took it.
In addition, the time that one gets to bed is just as important as the several hours that one actually sleep hours. Some experts even believe that the best time to asleep is between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.. This is when repair, renewal, and re-energizing of the mind and body takes place. The mind repairs itself through resting, dreaming, and decreased brain activity. The mind ceases attending to wakeful activities and switches over to restfulness and then dreaming.
Lucid dreaming is when the dreamer is aware that they are dreaming and in return have the control to do anything they want in their dreams.
