      It all depends on your sleep cycles , some dreams can be as short as a few seconds, but since we sleep in 30 minute cycles , dreams normally dont last more than 30 minutes

      Usually anywhere between a few seconds and 30 minutes. Our brains do most of our dreaming when we’re in REM sleep which is a stage of our sleeping where our eyes move really rapidly (hence the name REM for Rapid Eye Movement)
