Dream recall is being able to remember your dreams.

Most people forget 50%, or more of their dreams within the first five minutes after waking up and 90% after 10 minutes...if they even remember them at first.

Most of us have trouble remembering dreams if we don't try to learn how to remember them.

Here's what you need to do to improve your recall.

Before Falling Asleep


Keep a dream journal next to your bedside. Even just a piece of paper and pen will do the trick. Or have a digital recorder.

Set your intentions. As you go to asleep, repeat in your mind: "I will remember my dreams when I wake up." This is called dream incubation.

Upon Waking


When you first wake up, don't move. Stay in the same position.

Try to keep your eyes closed. Minimize any distractions by bringing your attention back to the last dream you had.

Think about the last part of the dream. Then try to take yourself back farther in the dream. Act like you are in the dream again, going through the same part again.

Next work your way back in the dream. Instead of trying to remember the very beginning of the dream, it is easier to start at the end and work your way backwards in the order of the dream. Ask yourself "how did I get to this part?" Piece all of the parts together. Soon you should have a full timeline of the events.

Run the entire dream in your mind. Start at the beginning and work your way through the dream. Remember each part, the scenes, characters, and story.

Now grab your dream journal and start writing. First jot down a few keywords if you are afraid you might forget, and then fill in the rest. You can also use a digital recorder and talk into it, and than transfer it to paper or computer later.

Include as many of the details as possible. Include specific places, names, and emotions that you experienced in your dream. Note how the dream may have transitioned and what you were thinking as it unfolded.

Going Forward


Once you have a some entries down on paper, read through them again. Do you still remember the dreams? If not, how can you change your writing to improve your dream recall?

Know what your dream signs are. Dream signs are events, emotions, characters, places, etc. that reoccur in your dreams. Underline or circle them in your journal. Knowing your dream signs can help you become lucid.
