A Nap Induced Lucid Dream is where you use a nap to have a lucid dream. Here's how you can optimize your naps and become lucid at any time of day.

Naps are a great way to have lucid dreams possibly increase the chances of having a lucid dream that night. You might even find that you have more lucid dreams during an afternoon nap than at night.

To put yourself in the best position to have a Nap Induced Lucid Dream, note these pointers:

REM Rebound. Try the REM Rebound Effect to have longer periods of REM sleep during a nap. This manipulates your REM cycle to your advantage by putting you in an optimal state for dreaming.

Best time to nap. Naps can usually be taken anytime between one hour after waking up until about 3pm (unless you have a unique schedule). Afternoon is usually the best.

Improve your chances for later. When you take a nap during the day, it increases the odds of becoming lucid that night. So don't get disappointed if you you didn't become lucid during your nap. It can help you have a lucid dream that night.

The Nap Advantage


Naps have a big advantage over nighttime sleep when it comes to REM sleep. REM sleep is when most of the dreaming takes place.

When you go to sleep at night, it takes 90 minutes before your first REM cycle starts. By this time, you're coming out of a deep sleep, making it harder to be conscious of your dreams.

While naps, on the other hand, are way more likely to start with a REM cycle, making napping great for attempting a Wake Induced Lucid Dream.

Next time you have a nap, keep your awareness through out the transition from awake to asleep. Then when you can remain conscious during this shift, you can move seamlessly into a lucid dream.

Do this by relaxing your body and keeping your mind alert. The more relaxed your body is, the easier it is to do this.

It does take some practice and concentration to get this to work, so incorporate this method in all of your naps.

If you have trouble having a Wake Induced Lucid Dream, try other methods, like a Dream Induced Lucid Dream (DILD).
