After using Pittman Pillows for several years, I sleep on nothing else, even taking my pillow when I travel. A few weeks ago, I forgot my pillow and spent a miserable night with little sleep. Never again! When the new ABC pillow was first introduced, I was one of the first to try it.
I must say that as good as the prior design was, this new one is
definitely the best.
Until recently, it was widely accepted that all people dream—except, perhaps those with certain brain injuries. However, researchers have discovered that there are some people who appear to have no dreams at all—or at least, they never remember any. While you may worry that something is wrong with your memory, research indicates there’s no connection.
“Nine percent of people will say they don’t have dreams,” says Pagel. “When we specifically question them, ‘Do you really not dream?’” most will say, ‘Well, my last dream was years ago,’ but a small number of people—2 in 1,000—say they have never ever dreamed.”
Pagel compared a group of non-dreamers to rare dreamers in a sleep lab, waking them up during various stages of sleep. About 10 percent of the rare dreamers did report having at least one dream—but the others did not.
“One was a math professor,” says Pagel. “Most of them had jobs and were very functional. There was nothing wrong with their memory, no abnormalities.”
So, if you don’t dream, don’t worry. It’s not known if people who never remember dreaming truly don’t dream, or just can never remember
If you sleep like a log, you probably have an attitude of gratitude. A study of 161 people published in the Journal of Psychosomatic Research found that those who focus on what they have—not what they lack—fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly. Grateful people are also less tired and more functional during the day. Why would being grateful affect your sleep? The researchers found that this was related to the thoughts people had as they drifted off. Being thankful led to faster, deeper sleep. “People who are feeling more grateful are less tense and anxious, because the two are incompatible,” says Vincent. “A mental state like that at bedtime would be helpful for your sleep.”
