      ... Bead bugs? Do they string themselves together to form a necklace?

      I'm a bit afraid to ask this, but... How often is it?

      Good habits for good sleep:
      1. Exercise most days, even if itís just to take a walk.
      2. No caffeine after 7:00 p.m.
      3. An hour before bedtime, avoid doing any kind of work that takes alert thinking. Addressing envelopesóokay. Analyzing an articleónope.
      4. Adjust your bedroom temperature to be slightly chilly.
      5. Keep your bedroom dark. Studies show that even the tiny light from a digital alarm clock can disrupt a sleep cycle. We have about six devices in our room that glow bright green; itís like sleeping in a mad scientistís lab. The Big Man's new pet, a Roomba (yes, he loves his robot vacuum), gives out so much light that I have to cover it with a pillow before bed.
      6. Keep the bedroom as tidy as possible. Itís not restful to fight through chaos into bed.

      What I want to know is how my biological clock is actually accurate to the minute on many occasions. I mean, I will know that I have roughly 1 or 2 minutes to go before I have to wake up but no reason to have a clock that accurate. O_O

      You asked why we dream. So answer according to me is: This shows creativity of our mind and also it depend on our unconscious mind the thought stuck in our in wants to come out then they found their way by the dreams.

      I've had my pillow for about 15 years. I got a new one last year, but I never use it myself and now it's rather my bf's pillow than mine. I much prefer the old one because it just feels perfect, I've never known another pillow that was equally soft and firm in texture at the same time. I positively hate having to sleep on other pillows.
      I wonder if it's those dead dust mites and their droppings inside that gives my pillow its awesome texture. If it is, I probably have to thank those mites for shitting and dying inside my pillow

      Call me gross, I don't mind as long as my pillow is comfy

      Some believe dreams exist to filter and sort our memories into the useful and redundant categories. People who study before going to sleep have time to sort that information better in their minds.

      Traverse the inifinite. Experience the impossible.

      I already knew number 21. It was in my school planner facts page. It still grosses me out though

      Here's a snoring cure, roll that person on their side. Most people's airways are not obstructed on their sides. I've heard of people stitching tennis balls in the back of their PJ's between their shoulder blades. This way when they are sleeping, if they roll on their backs, the uncomfortableness will make them roll back onto their sides without waking them up.

      My friend snores SO loudly. When I stay at hers I sleep in a different room... I'll tell her this and see if it works Last time I looked over her when she was sleeping she was on her back with her mouth hanging open, so I'll see what it's like on her side.

      Two out of three of these are false.

      I used to have Somniphobia. Not anymore though. Went away when I became so tired that I was awaiting going to sleep the whole day. 5 hours a day ain't enough for someone who sleeps 16 hours a day on holidays.
