  1. The first is not to jump up after waking up. Lie down for five minutes, thinking about your dream. The second is to make a habit of waking up, immediately mentally asking: What did I dream about? The third, and most effective, in my opinion, is to write down your dreams every morning in a specially created notebook.

  2. Sleep has a curious property: after waking up, the internal monologue (dialogue) continues from the place where you fell asleep.

    Therefore, it is almost a win-win method to fall asleep with the idea that you need to remember the dream. So the first morning thoughts will not have time to melt the memory of your dream. After that, of course, you need to write it down.

    There are practical benefits to be gained from dreams. The only question is whether something that only you know is useful to you.

  3. There is some evidence about the effect of vitamin B6 on dream studies and their memorization.
    Pyridoxine is thought to be a stimulating factor for dreams due to its interaction with l-dopa decarboxylase in the production of dopamine and serotonin. Serotonin-based drugs (such as SSRIs) increased the intensity of dreams in subjects, so it is generally assumed that increased arousal during sleep (it is during these periods that dreams are most common) and subsequent awakening may underlie an increase in dream intensity; the frequency of dreams also increases with pyridoxine use. When testing dream recall (a subjective assessment of dream intensity) after waking up, it turned out that 100 mg and 250 mg of pyridoxine showed a dose-dependent increase in dream recall compared to placebo.The experiment involved 12 students, some of whom were given B6 before going to bed, the rest – a placebo. As a result, those who took the vitamin for five days had brighter and more emotional dreams.According to the authors of the experiment, B6 converts the amino acid tryptophan into serotonin during REM sleep. Because of this, serotonin “wakes up” the human brain while he sleeps, which makes dreams more realistic.

  4. Everything is simple – every morning immediately review in memory what you saw in a dream, and write it down on a dictaphone or in a notebook. The more you practice, the more you will remember over time (in my experience, you even start to remember cool dreams that you had many years ago).

    If you can't remember anything, pay attention to your feelings and emotions – this is what is left of your dream. So gradually something will start to become clear.

    And a few more points:

    When you remember, it is better to look at some small object at the same time-so more little things will pop up in your memory.

    Also, be sure to say what you experienced during certain events in the dream, your emotions.

    Dialogues and phrases should be written down first, they are forgotten the fastest.

    Oh, yes, even when you just woke up, try not to move much and do not change your position. So you can forget everything instantly.

  5. It is believed that remembering dreams is generally bad, because there are no built-in mechanisms for remembering dreams, and they are not designed for this. Dreams are more likely a byproduct of our brain's activity during sleep, from which it is unlikely to be possible to extract practical information.

    Sometimes it is possible to judge the psychological state of a person by dreams, but the emotional background is analyzed more often (for example, constant disturbing dreams) than real pictures (a dog is chasing you), and this should be done under the supervision of specialists.

    If you really need to, then a sudden awakening or change of scenery does NOT contribute to remembering dreams. Try to wake up naturally in the dark and immediately record what you see.
