      Getting up early

      This is specially for students and people working morning shifts. When I go to uni, I normally set my alarm at 5.40 am, which is pretty early. On days like this, what I can only hope for is having enough sleep and a decent amount of recall. I'm not too experienced in LD so DILDs are quite unlikely. I like combining WBTB with other techniques, but obviously this is impossible when getting up so early. How do you guys combine LD with your work/college schedules?

      You look about my age, I go to uni as well and the thing is I have to wake up 6:20am. Except I don't do it LOL, I just can't handle it (bad excuse, I'm really just lazy) so I sleep more. Thursday I have to go to school early as well else I can't get my grade for that subject, but I just don't remember journal that day. It's okay to not do it all the time. You can do WBTB but make sure you get 9 hours of sleep. Which means going to bed around 9. Take it or leave it, not much you can do else.

      I usually do WILD on weekends or just do it when I don't feel like sacrificing sleep will harm me.

      Also doing WILD's during class works pretty well.

      I'm in the exact same boat, as a full time student and employee. I got back into school because of an interest in lucid dreams, but because of my schedule I hardly even recall any--it seems like the alarm clock kills my chance at recall but I can't do without it.
      I don't have much time for naps and such, so I was figuring I would just have to get good at DILDs. I think I am having some successful DILDs, but since my recall is terrible, I am only getting fragments of them when I wake up.

      I am thinking about working a WBTB into my weekday schedule, like just waking up an hour early and going back to bed for an hour on some weekdays. Does this really jack up your sleep?? At first glance it seems like it would, but if you are getting all your deep sleep early on and then just re-entering REM, maybe it would be ok...

      anyone have any experience with this or know the effects?

      My WBTBs are usually quite short, because if I stay up for more than 30 min I have a hard time falling back asleep afterwards. 20 min or so does it for me, so it doesn't mess much with my sleep schedule, but if I have to wake up early I can't do it.

      Hi, I also get up as early as possible to do my daily task for my family and work. My advice here is for you to have at least 8 hours of sleep. You must have also your daily vitamins in order to protect yourself from stress and other health disturbance.
