I'd buy it. Sure I have it on Steam already, but whatevs. Anything to keep it going in gaming circles, especially for a new generation of lil gamers. ^^

Exercise is proven to change brain chemistry, so yeah, it probably did. ^^ Try doing a small workout before bed for a few days and see if it continues to help.

@viper: I have the same problem.... My brain refuses to shut up. I actually worked out meditative breathing as a kid so I could fall asleep. I still use it when my brain is being hyper, it really helps. Just breathe in, count to five, breathe out, count to five, and repeat, putting all of your attention on the task. Your brain will try to wander, but keep at it!

I turn off all my electronics about an hour before bed. (Or try to... It's a challenge) I read somewhere once that the quality of light from computers, TVs, and smartphones inhibits melatonin production. I wish I could remember where I read it to show you. In either case, when I read in bed for an hour or two before I turn out the lights instead of INTERNET, I do notice a difference in how fast I fall asleep.


It also helps me to fall asleep faster when I eat a small snack beforehand, like a bowl of cereal or something.


Lastly, I also tend to wake up a lot when I sleep because I'm a ridiculously light sleeper, but I've discovered keeping a glass of water by my bed to drink from when I wake up helps me go back to sleep faster, for some reason.


Hope these help!

@Musashi: Yeah, I do the same thing. As soon as I become lucid enough, I generally go straight to flying. I went skydiving the other night!  I'm really happy my flying is improving so quickly. ^^

@ Infractus: Yeah... I remember having to constantly stay up, too. It still happens sometimes. Just keep at it, slowly you'll work out what tricks work for you. At least, that's what I did. ^^;  I'm still actually really bad at consciously realizing I'm dreaming, myself. I just dream, and do lucid dream like things without thinking about it, and then I say things like, "I am so glad I'm asleep right now. Wait, I'm asleep?" I have no idea what to make of it.


@gonzo : It's really hard to maintain lucidity at first, when I first started I would be so startled by the sudden change I would make myself wake up instantly. But slowly over time, they would last longer and longer.  You can do it!


@ Sammy: Wow, NiGHTS almost never shows up in my dreams. That's really cool!  I think I can remember about two dreams with NiGHTS. Ask him/her for lessons next time you see him/her.


And take note everybody: the more you talk about your dreams, the more it gets your brain to pay attention while dreaming.  It trains your brain to take notes as you sleep for later, which is one step towards your brain being aware enough to go lucid.
