Dream away a bad day

November 30, 2011

Having a day from hell? Getting a good night’s sleep (so that you get some REM dream sleep) may help the day not seem so awful says a new study from the University of California, Berkeley. Dreaming, it seems, helps take the edge off of those painful memories — the study found that during REM, we have lower levels of stress hormones in the brain, which helps act like a soothing balm for your bad-day emotional state upon waking up the next day.

(And for your sleepytime? Some cute and comfy boxers — these ones above are from Aerie.)
