What is REM?

There is so much about sleep that we do not know. One important state during the sleep cycle is the REM. REM stands for Rapid Eye Movement. As the name suggests, it is associated with the rapid side-to-side movement of the closed eyes.

In particular, REM sleep dominates the latter half of the sleep period, especially the hours before waking up.

What happens to your body during REM? Nothing fancy – Your body’s regular functions just get amplified to more rapid breathing, your body loses control of all muscle activity & body temperatures begin to fluctuate.
However, apart from the biological alterations, this is the time during the sleep where you experience your most vivid & imaginative dreams.

Studies also suggest that the more your level of comfort during sleep, the better you dream.
