I didn’t have this problems when I couldn’t produce long LD-s. But now, after LD-s I can’t go back to sleep (or it takes a lot of time and the further sleep is fragmented and poor.). I use MILD technique.
After waking up, I immediately write my dream if it is an LD (which takes some time and might cause me to become more awake). After a good LD, I also get excited. If my LD had been good enough, I don’t try to have another LD and I just want to fall sleep, otherwise I focus on my MILD intention, but sometimes the daytime thoughts come to me too.
I don’t like to have LD-s in the first 6 hours of my sleep. And also after a good LD, I usually take a couple days off of LD to contemplate the lack of sleep. But still in these two situations I sometimes get unwanted LD-s which are not as aware as my other LD-s and therefore not very fun. But still they ruin my sleep as well. This makes me need more days off of LD and having less good LD-s than I want .
What should I do?
