      My sleep pattern

      Hi guys I have a question for you. I go to bed and wake up in the same time except for monday and friday, normally I have 8-9 hours of sleep but in these days I have only 7. Because I have to wake up earlier and I just can't fall asleep soon enough. Is that a problem for lucid dreaming? I just started to write my dream journal a few days ago so I can't answer it for myself. Thanks!

      This is a small problem for lucid dreaming. The less you sleep, the less you dream. Less dreams means less chances to become lucid.

      But getting less sleep one night won't affect your chances the next night.

      You could try going with mini WBTBs on those nights. Try to wake up after 4-5 hours of sleep and then return to sleep pretty quickly, while slightly keeping your intent on becoming lucid in a dream.

      It might technically reduce the chances a bit, but as long as you're getting a healthy amount of sleep overall, it won't stop you from being able to have lucid dreams. Although they tend to be more likely late in sleep, especially during longer sleep periods, when we have longer REM periods and sleep more lightly, lucidity is possible during any time of sleep, even early in the night.

      I'd go for it and not worry about it too much.
