7 Interesting Facts About Dreams
Doing physical activities
We all have probably been there — you try to run, fight, or jump high, but it feels like you’re doing everything in slow motion no matter how hard you try. Researchers suggest that we may perceive time differently while sleeping, both faster and slower.Besides, we see dreams during our REM sleep, and our muscles are immobilized and relaxed during this time. This way, our brains make sure that we won’t act on what we’re dreaming about. So this feeling of slow motion may occur because of the lack of muscular feedback or slower neural processing during this stage of sleep.
