Why Don’t I Remember my Dreams?

The shorter the time between dreaming and waking the more likely you are to remember at least a little bit of your dream. The longer the time is between the dream and the time you wake up, the less likely you are to remember the dream. We have about 2 hours of dreaming per 8 hours of sleep, and we have about 4 or 5 dreams per night. Most people can’t remember even one dream, much less all of them.
