1) Dream Diaries
Spending at least 10 minutes in putting down and recording your dreams in the morning. Even if you wake up in the middle of the night, try to remember and write down what happened. This trains your brain to become used to retaining memories while you are dreaming and to bring awareness into the dream state.
2) Reality Checks
Performing as many as 10 or more reality checks during the day, and these should be spaced out during the day. Does your reflection look normal in the mirror? Do the palms of your hands look normal close-up? How long do you stay in the air when you jump? Perhaps even make a marking on your hand and look at it throughout the day, and in your dream you will notice it missing. When you notice it is no longer there, you will realize you are dreaming.
