Exclamation 3 Step Guide To Remembering Dreams

How To Remember Your Dreams


1: Get a pen/pencil + notebook and put it right next to your bed, or wherever you may sleep.

2: Start Going to bed earlier. (Only because more sleep = more REM sleep = more dreams.)

3: When you wake up each morning or during night wright down anything that you remember from dream. (Even if its only a word, or perhaps a picture. Thats still a start)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now i will tell you a few more of the methods and tricks I have read about, tried, or discovered in doing this three step method. The most important one bing do not get discouraged. It took me about one week of not remembering a single dream to get the hang of it. Also another important part is if you drink and smoke you WILL NOT remember your dreams that night mainly because dreaming is dependent of REM, which is cut off because of the substances.

Another tip (not as important as the first few, but still worthwhile) is to set your alarm six hours after lying down in bed. This should only be done if you can not remember any dreams at all when you wake up. You may wonder ??? hmm what is this doing other than waking me up? Well, it is giving you a chance to wright down any dreams you may have forgotten by morning. They will be fresher and more detailed at this hour.

Keep your sleep schedule approximately the same. Weird hours and crazy times will surely cause you not to dream as much, and certainly not remember most of it. Also for those of you who say "Well this is stupid, I do not dream!" ...That is wrong, you do. You just do not remember it like most others. Eventually you will get better and better over time, remembering small little details and actually feeling more refreshed like you just went on an adventure.

Feedback would be great. Even jsut what you thought of the advice and guide and perhaps if it worked out for you. I will also begin posting some of my favorite dreams down here.

I think i'll start to do this, a lot of my dreams fascinate me.
Then again, a load of them terrify me as they involve my death, so... y'know.
Reading that though if i have drank that night (but not to excess) i often have the most vivid dreams...

I think I'll start this too because I've been interested in remembering my dreams lately... I can only remember one dream in the past month but my sleeping pattern has been very erratic lately.

@Piss Me Off: Well its not Aways the case. When you drink its disturbs sleep, which causes you to have less REM and not go through the four stages of sleep properly. That is why you would typically have less dreams.

@Seltzer: If you have any problems or questions just ask. And theres other ways to do it with an erratic sleep pattern. If you want me to send you a link to it tell me.

Hey RezZ, do you know anything about lucid dreaming? Now that's something I'd be interested in attempting.

Yea it is a very fun idea. I have tried many times but only rarely have them, the few i have had though were extremely fun.

I probably don't know enough about it to make a guide, thats for another time.

If you want I will give you a link to a really good guide made by someone else.

I didn't need to write last night's dream down because it was pretty vivid. I think it's because i randomly woke up at 5 and fell asleep again and then had it.
Wasn't enormously interesting though, i was returning some books to school (like i'll be today) and for some reason this was at night-time and resulted in large amounts of dudes in tracksuits chasing me on bikes.

Oh man, I can't count the number of times I was dying in my dreams, suicide, cancer, AIDS etc. Mind you, I never actually managed to die, even when I slashed my wrists somehow and was bleeding out...gotta love the subconscious.

Two days ago I dreamt I could fly...it was the most fun I'd had in a while...I'm not sure if it was lucid dreaming but I was aware that I could do anything I wanted.

Oh and that bit about not drinking or smoking isn't really true, I was a heavy smoker for 12 years and I've had many vivid dreams...

As i said before it does not always prohibit you from dreaming, just cuts down on amount f dreams had, therefore making it harder to remember.
