      Reading and ADA

      Do you find reading increases or decreases your awareness throughout the day? If so what type of reading (novels, articles, etc.) I have been thinking that maybe books that exercise imagination and visualization might be beneficial to lucid dreaming. What do you think?

      Totally! Combine that with frequent meditation and you naturally boost your dream awareness and vividness. That said, I am a avid reader that's not too fond of reading. My eyes get strained easily while reading, but I read because my SO enjoys reading. Novels help me exercise my immigration quite a bit. ^^

      Hiya! Yeah, reading helps me concentrate in a certain way. I write more than I read though. There is only so much time I have in the day to sit in a stationary position, so I get my writing done, and then if I have extra time to be sedentary, I might do some reading.

      I listen to audio books or lucid dreaming related M P 3's as I go about a lot of my daily tasks. That is kind of the opposite of mindfulness since I am distracting myself from what's actually around me though. I will admit I mainly do that to dissociate from my own thoughts and feelings because I am not a whiz at coping with everything.

      Do you find that when you read more you tend to have better dream recall? If you have not paid attention to this, try and tell me the results, thanks!

      if there is a dream recall boost it's minimal as far as reading stuff like novels, articles etc. However, I have noticed that whenever I go back read my older dream journals my dream recall does somewhat improve. So rather than reading in general reading dream journal exercises your memory and it helps improve recall. ^^

      I keep a daily diary and a dream journal, these coupled with meditation and visualization already enhances my recall quite a bit.
