My teacher told me many years ago, that dreaming was a release of tension - and to this day I believe him.

Try to write down at least what you remembered.

Whether or not you remember your dreams, unless you are taking some kind of chemical drug that suppresses dreaming, your brain will ensure you get all the dreaming you need for your health. Just make sure you get enough hours' sleep and it will happen.

What do you mean by natural antidepressants? You mean like St. John's Wort or something?

On the point about remembering dreams, I can't remember them during the daytime, but I often remember the same dream when I'm falling asleep, from which I conclude that remembering dreams could be state-specific, i.e. you have to be in a dreamlike state to remember your dreams.

I have two tips for those who want to remember their dreams.

1. Years ago I started a dream diary and would write down any I remembered as soon as I woke up.  I think I only did this for a few weeks and since then usually remember my dreams

2. Get enough sleep.  There are all different types of sleep, some which do not contain dreams.  If you get enough sleep you will likely start to dream in the morning and then it is easy to remember your dreams.

Good luck!
