Though you've likely had some fairly memorable dreams in your life, you probably don't remember each and every minute detail of every dream when you wake up in the morning. And though it's normal and natural for most of your dreams to fade away relatively quickly after you wake up, if you can't seem to ever remember your dreams, that could mean that there's something else going on. There are a number of things it could mean for your health if you don't remember your dreams in the morning.
From having certain conditions to sleeping with an alarm clock, there are a ton of factors that can make it even more difficult for people to recall dreams long after waking. Just because you can't retell a very specific dream to coworkers at lunchtime or your partner after you get home from work doesn't mean that something's wrong, but there are some health implications associated with rarely or seemingly never remembering dreams even fairly soon after you awaken. Sleep is so important for your health and though there's still a lot that experts don't know for certain about dreams, some researchers believe that dreaming is an essential part of sleep that's an important factor in your overall health. While scientists will likely continue to evaluate the sort of function that dreaming might serve, if you can't ever seem to remember your dreams in the morning, there are a few things that that might mean for your health.
