It’s not only fun, it’s empowering

Lucid dreaming is the sensation of being asleep during your dream but knowing you are dreaming and having agency inside the dream. Psychology Today holds that, “Lucid Dreaming is your chance to play around with the extraordinary parts of your brain.”

A study published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology show that people who have intense lucid dreams are likely to have good mental health. The freedom and pleasure of controlling your dream transfers very positively in your waking life. They did not notice mentionable improved mental health among individuals who have frequent lucid dreams, but they did conclude that the people who experienced intense, positive lucid dreams were less likely to have psychological problems.

Francesca Siclari, an author and researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, also reported some noteworthy discoveries about the brain while it’s dreaming. Her team was looking closely at the parts of the brain in a dream and to some extent found how to identify what the dream was about based on what parts of the brain were lighting up.

According to The Guardian, Siclari said it’s “proof for the fact that dreaming really is an experience that occurs during sleep… maybe the dreaming brain and the waking brain are much more similar than one imagined because they partially recruit the same areas for the same type of experiences.”
