With all the talk about using Evernote as a surrogate memory I haven't seen anyone really mention using Evernote to remember their dreams. As everyone knows and has experienced, dreams are the most fleeting of memories and are very difficult to remember. For a time I used to write down my dreams in a blank journal book, but as I started to use Evernote to store and catalog my notes and experiences I figured why not do the same for my dreams. I still use a notebook to copy down my dream once I wake up because staring at a bright screen when you wake up is painfully annoying and distracting when trying to remember details. Once I have all my details written down I will then create a new note in Evernote and store it there. Once it is in Evernote I don't have to worry about losing it or forgetting it. Plus since it is digital I can take advantage of features that I couldn't with a physical copy, like searching for specific details, or determining correlations between dreams. I can tell you from my own personal experience that having a dream journal is immensely rewarding. For the first time in a long time I can remember my dreams. Read old dream entries takes me back to the dream and I can almost remember it as vividly as the moment it happened. With Evernote I can work with my dreams and get more out of them. I also included the template I use for my notes should any others want to start logging their dreams.
