      Do you guys have "hiatus months"?

      anyone notice that in certain months your dream quality seems to go down, or have less lucid dreams? I'm not 100% sure myself but there seems to be a pattern in my personal life:

      2016: none in May (no LD either), July, August, December

      2017: none in April, May, June, July, September (To be fair, I had a bad breakup near beginning of April and the depression kinda lasted all the way three to four months)

      2018: none in March, May, October, November, December

      2019: none in June, July, October, November, December (This is actually explainable because I returned from military boot camp to home in October)

      Though this might only be a coincidence since in 2015 June I had six 5/5 dreams, October I had seven 4/5 dreams and in December I recorded 43 dreams. in 2018 I had 32 LD's from end of June to August, which negates the "summer time sadness" idea that I had got from 2017 and 2019's coinciding. Perhaps I'll get better ideas this year...

      My amount of lucid dreams, and recall in general, generally correlates with the amount of work I'm putting into my dreaming practices. Once I get things on a roll, I'm usually good until some distraction comes up and I lose concentration and focus on my dreams. Then things start going down hill pretty quickly.

      Yeah, relationships will do it... I can imagine being in the military wouldn't make things easy dreaming wise either.

      Besides being distracted with non-dream related stuff (aka life) and missing out on practice, I usually find my recall and lding goes down during very warm months. I would fall into much deeper sleep which makes it difficult to ld.

      Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

      To be honest, I can't go lucid when it is warm or humid nights either.
      Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence

      Not really. It's not so much the heat that's messing me up. It's reading "The Shining" all day and then having to sleep with the light on.
