How to improve recall
The best way that you can improve the dream recall is for you to start up a dream journal.
This is basically a book that you have near your bed so that as soon as you wake up, the first thing you will do is write what you have just been through.
It's going to be tough to recall things straight away but you're going to want to write as much as you can and remember as much as you can about what you dreamed about.
People have roughly 3-7 dreams a night so it shouldn't be too hard for you to think of at least one thing, if there is a possibility that you can't remember anything you will still want to write "don't remember" into your journal as this can help make everything a habit that you can keep doing.
What To Recall
So what are you going to be trying to recall in the journal?
In short you will want to try and remember anything and everything that you can:
- Colour of your surrounding
- Important landmarks
- Anything you can feel
What can this lead to?
Not only will this improve your dream recall but there are plenty of things that you can do with your dream journal.
For example you can find common recurrences through it, this will include objects or pets etc. Lets say that you see a red ball frequently, the next time you see the same red ball you will know that you are dreaming. These dream signs are things you need to look out for and can be easily spotted with the help of a dream journal.
If you want to get a lucid dream then you need to start to write a dream journal and in it you need to write down everything and anything you can remember about your dream.
