Does anyone wake up and have to take a little while each morning to recover from the lucid dreams/nightmares?

      @cramo I'll give up sodas before I give up coffee. 😂

      I used to have this problem, but it went away after my quality of life improved. I hope you recover from it too.

      for a lot of people, lucid dreaming is a skill that they choose to work on because it can have a lot of mental health benefits. They question reality by choice, meaning that they ask themselves throughout the day if they might be dreaming, and think of ways that they know they're definitely not in a dream. It's called a reality check and it helps to have lucid dreams because if you consistently practice it during your waking life, you could end up doing it in a dream as well. Everyone naturally assumes that they're awake all the time, which is why asking yourself if what you're doing right now is real can help you become lucid in a dream(if you see lucid dreaming as a positive thing that you'd like to try.)

      I never even knew you could have a lucid nightmare? Maybe because I'm never lucid. If lucid dreams mean you know that it's a dream. I always think I'm awake when I'm not. Which really makes you question reality. If you are able to lucid dream you probably also question reality a lot.

          @cramo Sometimes I can wake up but I'm still dreaming and I just dreamed about waking up. And then I wake up again. If you die in your dream do you wake up or just dream of waking up like me? Being trapped in your own head is not fun

      I was wondering if there was a term for it. That explains so much. I tend to have lucid dreams and wake up feeling tired throughout the day. No amount of coffee helps.

        @Taura05 caffeine can also cause nightmares in some people. I try to limit my caffeine intake, im not sure if it helps or no tho 😅
