Leetcode and dreaming

I am in my early 30s. Whenever I do leetcode consecutively for a few weeks, I start dreaming weird things during my sleep. Sometimes I even dream about leetcode questions. As you expect, when I wake up, I feel exhausted and entire next day will be very unproductive. Is this normal ? Does this happen to you as well ? How did u cope with this ?
Thanks in advance

    If you're getting exhausted and unproductive for a whole day just from a dream, you're softer than the free Amazon 🍌.

    When I was dating my girlfriend(now wife) she was in my dreams often but not once after she became my wife. Weird

    It means you’re about to transform into leetman with leetcode superpowers. Then you’ll finally make it to Albertsons

    This actually used to happen to me a lot in the early days of my LC grind.

    I think its just your brain assimilating new patterns/techniques. The dreams should go away after a while.

    Do the needful before sleeping. So you can sleep in peace.

    It simply means you are getting stronger in algorithms, good sign for interview. As that needs absolute focus.

    If you give too much attention to anything (be it LC, job, Netflix series, gf), it will hijacks your mind and will start coming to mind when u r half asleep or dreaming.

    If you're not dreaming about what you're working on, you're not working on it hard enough

      Comes and goes. Try to relax after solving them and before going to sleep. Watch tv or do something different

    That's the secret way of Albertsons to tell you to come interview at their place
