The Importance of a Dream JournalHave you awakened from an amazing dream, thought you would remember it, then later couldn’t recall it or only remembered bits and pieces? This happens to all human beings, which is why it’s imperative to document them upon awakening. People have different preferences on how to record their dreams, such as:

  • Speaking into a voice recording device.
  • Clicking a dream journal app on their smart phone.
  • Using a laptop.
  • Sketching their dream into a notebook.
  • Writing longhand with a pen in a fancy journal.

Many people get out of bed with a to-do list: make coffee, prepare for work, take care of your children, feed the pets, or walk the dog. One thing the majority of us does when we rise out of bed is answering the call of nature – bring your dream journal with you.

Yes, you can multitask in the privacy of your bathroom. Write, type, or record the highlights of the dream, along with what you were feeling during the dream. Later in the day, what you have written may help trigger more memories of the dream to transcribe.
