What is a Dream Journal and Why Would You Want to Keep One?

A dream journal is a personal diary to records dreams, including details, emotions, and taking note of recurring themes.

Dream journals can help people understand their subconscious, analyze patterns in their dreams, and gain insights into their inner thoughts and emotions, ultimately fostering self-awareness and psychological exploration.

Some prompts that might be included in a dream journal include:

  •     Describe a vivid dream from last night.
  •     Explore recurring themes or symbols.
  •     How did your dreams make you feel?
  •     Any connections to real-life events?
  •     Imagine a positive dream scenario tonight.

Some pages you might include in a dream journal:

  • Lots of free writing space…maybe prompts to explore feelings, things thought about during the day, activity to see patterns
  • Pages to allow for drawing
  • Pages that explain what different types of dreams can mean
  • Pages to work out emotions caused by dreams
  • Tracking recurring dreams
