If you are a sailor in your dream it means that your emotions are a little off and that, therefore, you want to escape from yourself. Restlessness and a thirst for adventure gets you out of a rut, but you must not let the desire get out of hand. On the other hand, considering that the sea represents the unconscious, the dream may be reflecting your desire to explore it or to begin a long journey. (See water , blue , boat , and sea ) Dreaming of a sailor who is ashore predicts a new romance; if you are on a boat, news will come from far away. On the other hand, if a woman dreams of being a sailor, popular belief says this is an omen of bad luck.

One of the reasons why people always get involved in road accidents is that, they are tired while driving, or that they lack sleep. Many people do not realize that their performance can be highly affected by having not enough sleep. Sleep deprivation can affect reaction as well as decision making, not to mention that it could make a person unable to drive well. It goes the same with drunk driving.
Types of sleep
There are two types of sleep that most of the humans undergo - REM and NREM. REM refers to the Rapid Eye Movement and NREM refers to Non-Rapid Eye Movement. Every individual will alternate these two types of sleep. Non-REM sleep will occur for a short period of time in the first stage of your sleep followed by the REM sleep. Dreams occur during the REM stage, where it lasts for 20 minutes. According to a researcher, J. Allan Hobson, dreams that occur in REM stage are usually forgotten when the individual wakes up. Studies conducted on patients during sleep shows that the frontal lobes in the brain, that are responsible for storing information, are inactive during the REM stage, which is the main cause for forgetting the dreams. Studies also show that this is the stage where you have the most intense dreams.
