Well, last night I fell asleep around 10:30pm and I had a non-lucid dream (the dream itself isn't important to what I'm asking about) that I was walking down the street of my town, and someone was following me right behind me. So I turned around, and leaped to tackle them. This sudden movement in my dream immediately jolted me awake. Upon waking, I was curious to see what time it was (expecting it to be the middle of the night like 3:00am) but as I looked at the clock it was only 11:30pm, an hour after I had dosed off.
Anyways, I was curious as to why I experienced a dream right as I went to bed? It wasn't a mid-day nap, so my body wouldn't of went straight to REM sleep. I didn't do anything special or out of the ordinary before going to bed and nothing was out of routine from what I normally do during the day. I normally go to bed around 10:00pm and wake up at 7:00am so my sleep cycle was kept consistent from what it usually is.
If anyone could tell me why or how someone could have a dream after only an hour after falling asleep, please share. I'm very curious.
