Your dreams are a very important part of your life. Sometimes, they may seem like complete gibberish, but they are coming from your brain, so have some sort of significance whether you realize it or not. They could just be from whatever you were thinking about before you fell asleep, or might be a surfacing of something that subconsciously is bothering you. It is said that you dream every single night multiple times, but rarely do we remember what the dreams were about. We're going to change that.
It is very beneficial to have the intention of remembering your dreams right before you go to sleep. If you really want to remember them, make sure that that's what you think about before you fall asleep. Tell yourself that you will wake up and remember at least one of your dreams. This sets your mind to focusing on remembering the dream, a similar concept to reminding yourself you have to wake up at a certain time tomorrow before you fall asleep.
As soon as you wake up, the first thought you have should be recalling what you just dreamt about. Don't do anything else first! Your first thought of the day has to be remembering what at least one of your dreams were or you're going to forget some of the things that happened during the dream. Now you want to write it down. It is a good idea to have a notebook and pen handy before you go to bed so it's within reach right when you wake up. Write down any and every detail you can possibly recall, no matter how unimportant it may seem. We are working on training our brains to remember any and every detail. Even if it is just that you were in a room or you remember someone being there. If you can, write down all dialogue you can remember from the dream, too. This will be one of the harder parts to learn to remember so make sure to write down everything you can. If you wake up in the middle of the night and are too tired to write down an entire dream, just write key points to help you recall, but it will be way more beneficial to just write out everything you can.
At first, you may not be able to remember the dreams you had, but keep thinking about remembering them the night before. Soon enough, you will be remembering at least one dream every single night and if you keep working on it, you will be able to remember multiple dreams every night. You may even start to realize patterns and key things that happen in your dreams, which will be very helpful for you to realize you're dreaming while you're still in a dream! Also known as lucid dreaming.
Remembering your dreams can help you to realize what kind of things are really on your mind while you're awake. Reread over what you wrote down and think about what could've caused you to have a dream about it. If nothing significant comes to mind, at least you get to relive the amazing experience your brain has created for you, which is awesome in itself!
