      Am I the only one that sleeps better when achieving lucidity?

      Hi!

      So, in the last couple of months, I have found out that when I have a period of non-stop "lucid productivity" (when I am aiming for LD), I fall asleep MUCH faster and even when I am doing WBTB I feel more relaxed in the morning.

      On the other hand, at times like now, when I don't have much time for ADA, WBTB and so on, it takes me a long time to fall asleep. Noises are more annoying, my mind more worried, you name it.

      Has anyone else experienced this?

      Are you sleeping better when achieving lucidity? Or are you achieving lucidity better when you sleep well?

      Are you going through stress right now by any chance? Stress causes overthinking. Overthinking causes crap sleep. And crap sleep means less lucid dreams.
      Just a thought, I'll await your response.

      No, it's not just that, i feel like those nights I go to bed thinking about LD, waking in the middle of the night to pursue lucidity, being aware all day long.. On those days I sleep much better and I fall asleep much faster focusing on my awareness, which is kind of a weird thing; but I quess focusing on LD is still better for sleep than thinking about real world problems, you know?

      It just feels like when I go to sleep knowing that I will enter a dream, I can sleep better and longer because I push the issues in reality out of my head and embrace the comfort of being myself, as cheesy as it may sound.

      That doesn't sound cheesy to me, it's admirable actually.

      I get what you mean now. It makes absolute sense too, cause when you do what you love, you're gunna be more at ease with yourself.

      Lucid dreaming has long been used as a means of healing oneself. I wonder if its the lucid dreaming itself that helps or if its the taking part in your passion that helps. Or both.

      Yes, and after getting a couple of LD's it just feels like it's THE right way to sleep. To anyone fearing that they will lose sleep in process of achieving lucidity: you may lose some sleep in the beginning , but after that you'll be in a much better spot.
