There is a set of questions for you to fill in just before you go to bed, and then further prompts to complete when you wake. These include writing down your dream, your interpretation, your emotions, and a little area for a sketch.

‘Important Thing‘ Section

reflect the heightened activity of dreams
‘Last Thing‘ Section
Exciting movie? Scary drama on TV? Been down a
rabbit hole on the Internet? All these can have a
marked effect on your dream state.

certain elements for a better dream experience.
…Then complete the ‘After Sleep‘ as soon as you

warning? Log your interpretation for future reference.

Dreaming is your
Own fantasy world!
Dreaming is like stepping into a fantasy world where
anything is possible. Recording them, as soon as you
wake, can be a fun and insightful way of determining
your workaday state of mind.
Dreaming is an escape from everyday life and can
detail events we dare not attempt, or even consider,
when we‘re awake, in the real world.
Your dreams may be telling you something your
conscious mind cannot compute. Therefore, it‘s
important to take note of events happening in your
Dreams can inspire, warn, scare or even delight you.
Recording your dreams can reveal patterns, reboot
memories, give obvious solutions to problems and
inspire direct actions.
Food, stress, confusion, excitement, anticipation,
overworking, guilt, love, as well as many other
emotions, affect the way we dream. Finding patterns
can help find the reason why we experience this
fantasy world and how we can have more of the
same or reduce what we dream about.
