If you always sleep on your left side, that tends to induce right brain dreams which are more abstract and can be more difficult to remember. If
that's the case, sleep on your right side, which should give you more sequential action dreams. Nothing like bashing in dream zombie heads!
Recalling your dreams is like exercising a muscle, the more you do it, the better you get. Try waking up 5-10 minutes earlier to give yourself time
for recall. Don't move when you wake up, and if you sleep on your side, don't roll over onto the other side!
Even if you remember nothing, you should still be able to feel a peculiar feeling when you wake, like an echo of the dream. Focus on that feeling and
don't let it go. This should yield a few flashes or fragments which you can build off of.
Keep a notebook beside your bed. Once you begin to get some memory of the dream, however little, jot down a few short notes about it and try to move
on to what comes next or what comes before. The notes help it from fading from your memory, and you can flesh out the dream later.
If you can't remember your dreams, you're really missing out. Check out this dream I had about a Mormon Sex Cult:
