Why do we remember some dreams?

Dreams have fascinated humans for thousands of years. Some people think they are harmless while others think they are vital to our emotional wellbeing. Most people have four to eight dreams per night which are influenced by stress, anxiety and desires, but they remember very few of them.

There is research to prove that if you awake from the rapid eye movement (REM) part of your sleep cycle, you’re likely to remember your dreams more clearly.
