      Question about Reality Checks

      Should you do a reality check anytime you see something odd or anytime you remember to do it? I've been doing the latter the past 3 days but my dreams have been bizzare and I still haven't question if I was dreaming. Also is it possible to over do reality checks thus making them seem automatic? Right now I do a rc every time it comes up in my mind and thats usually intervals of 5 or 10 minutes. Should I add mantras into it maybe?

      I set a timer so every hour my phone reminds me to do a reality check. Also I do it when ever I remember too. Doing it in 5-10 minute intervals may seem easy at first, but after a while it gets to hard to manage, so do what ever you feel works.

      It is possible for reality checks to become automated, and thus useless as an automated reality check will generally not help you become lucid. The most important thing with reality checking is to actually question what is around you, and the reality check itself should only be conformation if you are dreaming or not. The frequency of a reality check if up to you, and what you feel works best. You just need to remain open to the possibility that you are dreaming.

      Mantra's should be used to set intention. You could include them with your reality checks "I will perform a reality check in my dream tonight" and then as you fall asleep "I will become lucid tonight" or a mantra that is more personal to you.
