Fun Fact of the Day: Fear isn’t the only reason you have nightmares. In fact, confusion, guilt, disgust, and sadness are more common reasons — and they’re more likely to linger with you longer than if you had a fear-based dream.

Fun Fact of the Day: Unlike common misconception, fear isn’t the prominent emotion experienced by people during night terrors. It was discovered by researchers that other emotions such as sadness, guilt, and confusion are the more obvious emotions. Furthermore, nightmares with these elements are more likely to be remembered by individuals than those dominated by fear.
