But I didn’t have the patience to stick to it. One of the things you’re supposed to do is write a dream journal. It’s supposed to help you train your mind to remember your dreams, and to help you figure out IF you ARE dreaming.
I’ve been having some REALLY odd dreams lately, but keeping a journal is quite difficult. I’ve put a pen and writing pad on my headboard, so I can write them down as soon as I wake up. However, there are two problems:
1. I can’t seem to wake up enough to remember that I’m supposed to be writing down what happened in my dream(s) as I come out of the fog of sleepiness.
2. I can’t just grab the pad and pen and start writing anyway. I need to put on my glasses, get out of bed, turn on a light, grab the pad and pen and start writing. And all that effort just ain’t happenin’ when you’ve woken up from a dream at 2:00AM.
