Step 1: Keep a journal Keep a journal and a pen right next to your bed at all times. Writing down your dream first thing in the morning will help with remembering details. Step 2: Wake slowly Wake up slowly in the morning. Take a few extra minutes under the covers to retell your dream in your head. Once you've got an internal grasp on the dream, write it down before getting out of bed. Tip Those peaceful moments between sleeping and waking are called the hypnagogic state. This can be a good time to remember dreams and take time to relieve stress. Step 3: [Sleep consistent] Maintain consistent sleep habits, including going to bed and waking at the same times each day, keeping snacks light before bed, avoiding caffeine and alcohol before bed, and sleeping on a comfortable mattress. Step 4: [Talk about your dreams] Talk to your friends and family about your dreams. Talking about memories can help conjure up details you may have forgotten and help with the interpretation of symbols that seemed beyond you. Step 5: Draw your dreams Draw pictures that you see in your dreams in your journal if drawing pictures is more helpful than describing them in writing. And remember to date your journal entries. Before you know it, you'll have a fabulous collection of dream memories. Did You Know? In 1953, researchers discovered that rapid eye movements, or REM, during sleep often signaled that a person was dreaming. They found that about an hour after subjects fell asleep, the subject experienced rapid eye movement and changes in brain waves.
