Today I’m going to be talking to you about dreams. As a certified Dream Specialist I work to help people sleep better and interpret their dreams. With that said, here are a couple tips that will help you remember your dreams more easily and find some meaning in them.
1. Keep a Dream journal
It’s helpful to keep a notebook to log your dreams in. Put a notebook or some paper and a pen next to your bed. When you wake up in the morning, write down your dream. Every dream has something to teach us about our lives. So, writing the dream down is one way to honor it.
2. Use a gentle alarm
Most alarms are blaring in the morning and by the time your alarm goes off, you will have forgotten most or all of your dream. Using a more gentle ringtone for your alarm will ensure that you wake up in the morning properly and you’ll be able to better remember your dream. Ask yourself “how do I feel?” when you first wake up and the dream should come to you.
3. Get proper sleep
Do your best to get between 8-9 hours of sleep per night. In order to increase your dream recall, you need to give your body enough sleep time. Many people have trouble remembering their dreams because they don’t sleep properly. It’s simple: fix your sleep habits = remember dreams easier.
4. Don’t give up
It make time a little bit of time for you to start remembering your dreams. But, by following these tips you should be sleeping better and remembering your dreams in no time!
