Is it good to dream?
Dreaming and sleep are intertwined. Dreaming is one of the most fascinating and unique aspects of sleep. On average, we spend approximately two hours dreaming during a normal night’s sleep. Dreams can occur during any part of the sleep cycle, but we dream most intensely during the stage of sleep known as REM (rapid eye movement).
