      Can dreaming make you more tired when you wake up?

      Do you think lucid dreams make you more tired when you wake because everytime i have a lucid or remember a dream which involved physical work i always wake up feeling as if i have had no sleep....

      I don't really see how this has to do with beyond dreaming, but yes and no, I've hear stories from both sides. Personally, when I have a rough dream, I wake up tired.

      you still get the same amount of sleep when you LD...i am pretty sure. maybe it is all just in your head thinking of all the physical work that you did just try to not think about it i am sure that you might gain some energy

      It's mostly psychological. You carry the emotion your dreams convey for some duration of time after waking, sometimes for the entire day. It depends on the magnitude of the emotion and how much attention you give it.

      Having lucid dreams tends to leave me extremely excited and interested in my day, while having depressing dreams makes me pensive and slow to react, and dreams in which I'm doing something tiring make me want to lay around and rest for a couple of hours afterwards.

      The fact that you're having the dreams means your body's getting the rest it needs. Just try not to let negative emotions interfere with your waking life; I have a feeling this is why people sometimes "wake up on the wrong side of the bed." (Regardless of whether or not they know they had a frustrating dream. )

      Apparently in a lucid dream the 'logic' centre of your brain at the front, becomes active. In a normal dream, this remains 'asleep'. So maybe some tiredness would occur, but if anything - i feel far more happy and energised after a good lucid dream.
