Every night you sleep and every night you dream— whether you remember your dreams or not. Usually dreams occur somewhere between 3-6 times per night, and last between 5 to 20 minutes each dream. So, the average person dreams between 15 minutes to 2 hours every single night.
Unfortunately, almost all of your dreams are forgotten before you ever get up for the day and you are unable to recall any details, even if you remember snippets that indicate that it was significant. Perhaps you had a fantastic idea or solved a problem that’s been bugging you. Unless you write it down, you will most likely forget.
Problem solved! Keep this journal by your bed and write down everything you can remember as soon as you wake up. You can go back and analyze what your unconscious mind was up to later if you want.
