When the hubs and I were house-hunting, we were spending so much time online sorting through houses, looking at pictures, mapping them out, making appointments, that we both had dreams about looking at houses, and ended up waking up feeling completely unrested. Presumably, our minds were still working while we were trying to sleep.
As we have been renovating our whole house, I've had dreams of picking paint colors, after staring at them and sorting through them for too many hours in a day. Making our yearly drive down the East Coast to the in-laws in Florida, I will have dreams about driving. And with my Etsy shop, I will be so involved in whatever I'm making that I then have dreams that I am working on something in my sleep. This has been the case the past few nights as I have been making and listing new items, promoting them online, and doing some other networking.
What causes this to happen? I've always found it bizarre, and wonder if it happens to other people. Are you working in your sleep?
