This

Names["Global`*"]

will give you a list of all global variables defined in your session.
If you have created variables in a different context you would have to
sub that context in the expression. The fact that a variable has been
defined doesn't mean that it is being used though. If getting a list
of variables *used* within your notebook is really what you want then
you could take the global list and scan your notebook using e.g. Cases
but I'll leave that for now.
