How does the Nap Induced Lucid Dream (NILD) technique work?

It works by staying up for an hour or two after waking up before going to bed again. This has

proven to be a very effective technique, maybe the most effective around. Sleep for about 5-6

hours, then stay awake for about 1-2 hours and go back to sleep.

Maybe doing some MILD a few minutes before falling asleep.

Or try staying conscious (WILD) until the dream starts. This will in many cases cause you to

have Lucid Dreams. Also a good way to have vivid dreams, or will at least make dream recall easier.

Staying awake for 90 minutes seems to work better than 60 minutes, though 60 minutes seems to

be effective enough in most cases. And sleeping for 6 hours seems to be better than 5 hours,

though it might be harder to fall asleep again. The time spent awake should be used thinking

or reading about dream related issues. Like reading about lucid dreaming or related newsgroups.
