What kind of sleeper are you? Do you drop off like a stone and awaken refreshed, or do you need pitch black and silence to drift off to dream?
I used to sleep 10 to 12 hours a night and would often say it was my absolute favourite thing to do, I am an avid dreamer and day dreamer and used to prefer sleeping and dreaming to being awake. Life was so dull.
Now I sleep more like 7 hours a night, but I sleep like a dead person. It takes about an hour at the most from when my head hits the pillow for me to fall into a deep, deep sleep. I have intricate, involved dreams that are often like movies I am starring in. Often the dreams are hard work.
I often dream of water in many different forms and states. I often dream of a giant wave coming towards me. I dream of gigantic swimming pools and being out at sea in boats. I dream that I am driving, that I am flying, that I am fighting. I also sometimes dream that I am married to a beautiful handsome actor (different ones) and these are so real. I wake up an hour before I get up in the morning and that is when I remember my dreams, I then go back to sleep and dream some more.
