I just found that giving my dreams names helps me remember them. I don’t even have to write them down or anything. I’ve done this now for the past 3 days and remember all of the dreams I’ve had just by giving them names.
I started doing this because lately I had been having trouble remembering my dreams when I wake up wrong. If I’m woken up abnormally, such as my alarm going off or someone rudely waking me up, my dreams would just pour out of my head and I wouldn’t be able to remember then until later, but then I would forget them again. Now I just give them names and I don’t forget.
I think this works so well because its easier to remember a name or an object and its associated attributes, instead of remembering whole events and its separate parts. I also noticed that my dreams had people from my past in them, so I just pick one them out and use their names. If not, creating a name from scratch works just as well.
Hehe :) Fucking Epic. Am I dreaming? Better flip a light switch really quick.
And not so much a random name, but a name that you can easily relate the dream to. I also wouldn’t use the same name for two different dreams. I forgot a dream earlier today doing that. If you see someone in the dream you know, use their name.
