It's impossible to know that you've had a precognitive dream until the events in the dream actually unfold sometime later in real life.

precognitive dreamWhen they do, you realize that you've had a premonition dream - and naturally you want to tell people about it.

Unfortunately, the people you tell may not in believe in psychic phenomena like precognitive dreaming - and may either scoff or think you're imagining things.

Here's a "timestamped" way you can prove that you had the dream in advance of the events:

Start your own online dream blog, recording as many of your dreams as you can (since you never know which ones may turn out to be premonitions).

The blog automatically timestamps all entries, so you can prove the date you actually had the dream if it later comes true.

Alternatively, if you have a really significant-feeling dream - such as a vision of a plane crash or natural disaster - you can record it at Harry Bosma's online Dream Registry.

Is your bedroom sabotaging your Zzzs? Fix the top 5 culpritsby Kristyn Kusek Lewisby Kristyn Kusek LewisEvery time my husband and I board a plane, the same thing happens: We find our seats, settle in with our books and magazines, and before anyone has a chance to offer us a cold beverage, he's fast asleep. Meanwhile, I can only glare at him–wide-awake with envy. I can't sleep on planes. Or trains. Or in any room not equipped with a not too-soft, not too-firm mattress and kept at the perfect temperature. And if I don't clock in my required Zzzs, I am not a very happy camper.

And if I don't clock in my required Zzzs, I am not a very happy camper.I don't hold out much hope I'll ever be able to conk out on an airplane, but experts say that a few simple changes in my bedroom could help me sleep a lot better. And I'm feeling motivated–turns out that my fussy sleeper personality could make me sick.

Researchers from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine recently found that consistently not getting a good night's rest can have a serious impact on my immune system, making me more prone to colds, infections, and serious conditions such as diabetes. Here are some simple changes that can turn any bedroom into a den of sweet dreams. Try them in yours–tonight.

You keep a messy pile of papers on your nightstand…
…and your desk…and the floor.

A cluttered sleep environment makes for a cluttered mind–the kind that churns well into the night. Stress is the number one cause of short-term sleep problems such as frequent middle-of-the-night waking and insomnia, according to the American Psychological Association.

Fix IT.
