Life Hacking Blog & Articles
Recently, with the help of an technology lifehack I've discovered a fascinating new side of myself, I'm a damned creative dreamer. I always had a feeling that I had very adventuresome dreams but until now I was never able to recall them with such detail.
Like just the other night I had a vivid dream that I was the dictator of an underwater society that lived in a giant submarine (with skyscrapers on it's hull). Our submarine was hit by a torpedo dropped by a Japanese WW2 zero. So the people of the underwater society decided to depose me as their dear leader and they condemned me to death by giant manta ray. So I put on my mask and snorkel (similar to the mask and snorkel I used in Nicaragua 4 months ago) and went for a swim next to the mega submarine, in the blue depths beneath me I could see the Manta Ray, it shot me with a dart (apparently Manta Rays can shoot darts!) but I was still quite able swim, the Manta Ray closed in on me and began to thrash me with it's massive wings (which didn't hurt very much). I could see it's glistening fangs. Then I woke up.
This is just one of my night time adventures, last week I battled stormtroopers while escaping from a version of hell that would put many a video game designer to shame and experienced zero gravity traveling to the center of the Earth.
I remember them with Evernote:
- I charge my phone while I sleep, I leave my phone under the side of my pillow.
- Before I go to bed a turn the brightness of my screen completely down.
- When I awake from a dream between 4AM - 8AM I record a voice note of as many details as I can recall from the dream.
- If you install the Evernote widget on the home screen of your iPhone or Android it takes all of about 3 seconds to open an Evernote voice note and start recording.
Important: When you start recording don't stare directly at the glowing screen as it will wake you up.
Like a lot of people I've tried dream journals before but by the time I had found my dream journal, a pen and turned on the lights I had forgotten some or all of the dream, which kind of defeats the purpose. Now it takes me just a few seconds to begin recording and it doesn't disturb my sleep.
