London - A third of couples admit they have fallen out with their partners over how they have behaved in a dream, a survey claims.

The researchers also found that 47 percent are so influenced by their dreams they affect them the following day – generating both good and bad moods.

In the poll of 2 000 people, 40 percent said dreams can change the way they feel about others while nearly 60 percent said they have helped them to solve a problem. Just over a third admitted that they rely on dreams to help them make decisions in their waking life.

The survey of UK residents for bedmaker Silentnight found 70 percent of people said they wake up feeling more tired if they have been dreaming, while 49 percent said they had recurring dreams about being chased, and 29 percent often dreamt about falling.
