You should relzx and don't push yourself, first breath in and out in the dream and do whatever you want, don't think about the dream ending cause you'll make it end.


Current LD goal(s): Enjoy :)

Keywords are the best I use to write my full dreams out before I went back to sleep but now I just write keywords and fill them in later on my online journal. A recorder beside your bed might be a viable option?

About the keeping calm bit I am the same I had an LD this mourning and woke right back up went I tried to get back to sleep I couldn't breathe and so I had to wake up. My subconscious must have been peeved off I figured out it was a dream smile

I can relate to that my girlfriend is pretty bad for waking up at the slightest of noises. So I have to be a discrete as possible. I tried unsuccessfully to get her into LDing which didnt work so you might try that? If not and she gets annoyed at you getting up at all hours just say "Honey I am about to have dinner with [insert celebrity] so if you don't mind Il see you in the mourning," smile

Why not set a goal for each LD? Then you have one thing in mind that you want to do, so you won't feel as rushed, and you could enjoy it more. It would probably be best if you decided on what to do right before sleeping, or you could do what I do and procrastinate until you are in an LD, and spontaneously decide. XD
Hope that helps. smile
EDIT: Oh yeah, as for remembering I replay the dream in my mind a couple times. That makes it easier to remember later.

I used to have that problem, too.
Like there's not much time, so you have to do everything quickly, right?

Yes, setting your intentions helps very much, but so does making the dream more lucid.
Try rubbing your hands and taking a deeeeep breath. It will slow things down for you and clear your mind for sure.

But know this: The more impatient and the quicker you are, the shorter the dream will be.

One of the biggests truths about lucid dreaming! grin

I used to have this problem too. My problem now is I don't get lucid enough to be in control of my actions... sadblauw

But about remembering your dreams in the morning, I sometimes try to find one element of the dream that would make me remember the whole thing. For example, if I have a long dream about camels, I'll focus only on the word camel, not on the whole dream. Then in the morning I'll rememer camel and with a little luck (doesn't always work shy2 ) more parts of the dream will follow. Just an idea, can be easier than trying to remember the whole dream.
