Do you remember your dreams? Even when you forget your dreams from the night before, you still dreamt for roughly two hours during the night. That means you've probably had one of the ten most common dreams people have.
Some of the weirdest and scariest dreams we have are actually universal, and many people end up dreaming about the same subject. This is because many of these dreams occur from underlying thoughts, feelings, and worries we have.
In each sleep cycle, we have about five dream episodes, each ranging from 15-40 minutes long. So that dream that seemed to last days, was actually probably only 20 minutes.
One of the most common dreams people collectively have is one where you are being chased by something. It usually differs what each person is being chased by, but sometimes it can be another person, an animal, or a completely inanimate object. If you have this dream, it could mean that you're running away from something in real life, whether it be responsibilities, problems, or even feelings you want to ignore like anger or jealousy.
Dreams often seem arbitrary and bizarre, but sometimes if you pay attention to what is happening in them, you can realize new things about yourself.
