Acceptance and mindfulness... fricken awesome. I'm glad this has helped you. Such things will make lucid dreaming, and real life hardship easier. I applaud your development!I've actually been following this thread and I've been working on it as well. Like Kontra, I find myself waking up a lot so I'm not as well rested. But the biggest side effect for me during the course of the day (other than fatigue from interrupted sleeping) is that I'm a lot more calm and circumspect. I don't really get nearly as anxious about problems, say, at work than I did before. I'm keeping an eye on this to see how it all plays out.
