Research shows the average person takes about 7 minutes to drift off into sleep, although the time it takes for people to fall asleep can vary greatly. When we’re getting ready to fall asleep, our brains go through periods of dreaminess, much like daydreaming. As we begin to drift off, we may experience hypnogogic hallucinations, or strange and vivid sensations such as feelings of falling. We may experience sudden muscle contractions or hear sounds, such as the phone ringing or someone calling our name. Source: PsychCentral.com
