Stephen: Cold weather could be causing you to have more vivid dreams

Have your dreams been more realistic? The cooler weather may be to blame. Dr. Tim Bond explained that generally, people who go to bed late and wake up late have more vivid dreams. But falling temperatures are also a contributing factor.
“A drop in temperatures in the winter months can make it easier for you to fall into a deeper restorative sleep, increasing the likelihood of vivid dreams,” he said. The lack of sunlight can also impact sleep patterns, as can eating late in the evening. If you’re struggling with overly-realistic dreams, reducing stress, eating earlier, and using relaxing essential oils could help.
