Loves to sleep. 💡 bring unconscious intelligence to light 🤔 brainstorm in your sleep ✨ connect intuition to rational thinking 😴 wake up with new ideas 👻 find meaning in dreams ⏰ get smarter by sleeping in #dreamstorm The brain in REM sleep is hardwired to freely associate in unexpected ways. While this may make dreams seem crazy and illogical, it’s also the most uninterrupted super-brainstorm you’re capable of. And then we wake up, decide it was all a dream, and throw our work away. Personally, I feel this is a mistake. Sleeping and dreaming is untapped resource that we can use for our benefit. Sleep might be your best thinking time. In the scientific world, people started calling dreams ‘sleep mentation' or 'unconscious intelligence'. So is sleep a waste of time? I think not! I think it’s a great tool to wake up with creative ideas, and get insights from dreams. And as a side effect, feel rested all day.
