5 surefire tools to help you remember your dreams.

When we first wake up, the dreams have not yet been placed in the long-term storage areas of the brain.

If we want to remember our dreams, we have to move the “files” of the dream we just had. How to do it ? Here are 5 infallible tools to learn how to remember your dreams.

The 5 best tools to learn how to remember your dreams:

1. Act quickly to remember your dreams.

If you get distracted, if you’re like, ‘I’m just going to check my email and then save my dream,’ it won’t be there. Register it NOW. I use my phone’s memo recorder.

As a doctor, I tend to keep my phone next to me for emergency calls, so I have it handy. I press the voice memo button, I speak, and the dream is recorded.

Often when I start recording a dream, I return to the world of sleep and remember other details of what you experienced. The dream is then saved forever and I can go back to sleep if I am in the middle of the night.


A pad of paper works just as well for those of you who don’t have the bad habit of sleeping with your phone.

2. Keep a dream journal.

Memorize and record your “dreams, don’t try to understand them immediately. If you save the dream, you will have the rest of your life to figure it out. Don’t get stuck on the first image or the first character in the dream.

If you have dreamed of Uncle Joe, and you start wondering how Uncle Joe is doing and you tell yourself that you have to call him, you will lose the rest of the dream. Recording a dream in a dream journal places it in long-term storage, not only in your laptop but also in your brain.

3. Make dreamwork a ritual.

When you go to bed at night, tell yourself to remember your dreams, and when you wake up, think about your “dreams to see if you have had any.” Think of the dreammaker in you as someone you need to develop a relationship with. He’s a friend, but you need to get to know him and talk to him regularly.

4. Don’t be afraid of nightmares.

I know it’s a paradox. Fear is usually part of the nightmare. But there is a difference between experiencing fear and being overwhelmed by it.

Fear is there for a reason. Often the intention of a nightmare is to metaphorically “wake you up” to an unhealthy way of looking at the world. Nightmares often harbor great wisdom. Sometimes people don’t want to remember their dreams because they are afraid of them.

5. Sleep more, stick to a sleep schedule, and sleep in when you can.

Our modern world has trapped us in an endless summer of short nights and long days. It helps us to be productive, but not creative.

Our cave ancestors lived in a world where winter nights lasted 12-15 hours and there was nothing to do but sleep and dream. It was probably during these long dreamy nights that the first works of art, the first cave paintings, were made.

The phases of REM sleep are longer and longer as the night progresses. If we go to bed at midnight and our alarm goes off at 5:30 a.m., we will dream very little.

At what stage of sleep do dreams occur?

Dreams occur during rapid eye movement sleep or REM sleep. REM sleep is a virtual playground where the mind explores new and creative options for processing emotions and solving problems.

In a sleep lab, if you wake someone from REM sleep, they will remember a dream 80% of the time. Many of us think that we are not dreaming. We remember few, if any, “dreams, and those we do remember are quickly forgotten.

In reality, we have many dreams every night, but we must learn to remember them.

Is it important to learn to remember our dreams?

YES ! Dreams can contain wisdom and creative solutions to problems. Edison found “dreams” to be such an important source of inspiration for him that he invented a way to wake up from sleep to remember his dreams. He slept on a chair, put ball bearings in his hand and a pie pan from the floor under his hand.


When he fell into a deeper sleep, his hand relaxed, the ball bearings fell, hitting the pie pan and waking him up, fresh from a dream.

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the Twilight novels, the Beatles song “Yesterday” and the Stones song “Satisfaction” all have their origins in dreams. We may not be novelists or members of a rock band, but dreams can bring us creative ideas and solutions to life’s problems.

Anyone can learn to remember their dreams, it just takes practice.
