Ravi Varma

if you want to rest eyes even during sleep then avoid dreams and fall into deep sleep.
for this use incense sticks in bedroom and use a dim yellow light of zero watts

Vaani

burn camphor in bedroom few minutes before sleep and you\'ll have sound sleep with good rest to eyes

Nivedita

place cucumber slices on eyes and sleep in complete dark silent room to rest eyes and muscles around

It\'s really a very good post from Ranjana. It\'s really very informative.

Most of the people are thinking that if we are in deep sleep, we won\'t get dreams. But that\'s false. We\'ll get dreams only when we are in deep sleep. The last stage of our sleep or deep sleep is technically called as \"REM\" stage. REM stands for Rapid Eye Movement. During that stage only, we\'ll get dreams.
