Last Friday’s post explored a dream recall technique for improving your dream memory. I have been testing this technique for the last two weeks trying to build this habit, but I am finding it difficult.
What are some of the difficulties I’ve encountered?
- Proper rest – when I am over-tired, remembering dreams (even after a nights sleep) is more difficult for me.
- My bed is falling apart.
- Busy morning mind-chatter.
I notice one of the biggest inhibitors to remembering my dream is the third point: busy morning mind-chatter. Waking up in the morning, I haven’t been giving myself the space to just sit and reflect on only my dreams. Instead other thoughts start filtering in, and then I find myself sucked out of the mindfulness reviewing my dreams into the drama of the day.
