Your brain only remembers the dream you wake up to. Your brain otherwise starts erasing all the dreams from the memory once they have ended. Now you know why don’t you remember any of your weird or not-so-weird dream!

6. Sleep paralysis

If one suffers from sleep paralysis they are unable to move, speak or even react at all in the dream. This triggers anxiety and fear.
