      Question Dream Recall - How quickly After Wake?

      Bit long this post, but please bear with me, my question is in bold at the bottom.

      Iím usually in bed by 10:00 and fall asleep within 15-20 minutes. I invariably wake at least once to use the loo (I drink a lot of water during the day and being almost 40 does this).

      01:30 Ė Awoke needing loo, remained motionless attempting recall but couldn'tít achieve clarity of mind to recall dream, Also, physical urge to use loo was very off-putting. After several minutes of a combination of needing the loo and zero dream recall I gave up and rushed to the loo. Once I was up, I was able to recall some dream fragments, not much but certainly more than the previous several minutes in bed.

      This has occurred for the last week or so. I seem to have difficulty in even attempting to recall a dream whilst still in this sleepy state. Itís not so much a problem in dream recall itself, itís the attempting to focus my mind on anything at all.

      Iím unsure if I need to work through this problem or accept that it doesnít work for me and wake myself slightly before performing dream recall.

      So my question is.....

      How crucial is that dream recall be performed immediately following wake up whilst remaining motionless or can some people achieve the same levels of recall if they first arouse slightly.

      pfft... you know, if I can't remember it as soon as I wake up, I do what I have to do. as long as you aren't using your head too much, you should still be able to get something, and thats better than nothing I guess.

      so, to answer your question - no. its not crucial at all. it helps a bit though.

      According to http://dreamviews.com/community/showthread.php?t=66343;

      When you wake up and remember a dream (or bring it back by laying still) you want to try and play it back through, remembering every detail. This is because your dream memory is designed to be extremely short term and you have to reinforce the memory in order to keep hold of it.

      By running through your dream once, you should have greater memory when you roll over and write it down because it is now stored in your regular short term memory, not your dream memory.

      Remember, moving the body (such as to write something down) tends to chase away dream recall.
      I think this is the way to go and work through initial problems (it has only been a week).
