What is a Lucid Dream?

A lucid dream is a type of dream where the person who is dreaming is aware that they are having a dream. It is possible for the person having the dream to have some control over the characters, narrative, or environment. However, this is not necessary for the dream to be called lucid. Lucid dreaming has been studied for a long time. People have talked about it. Lucid dreams have fascinated people from ancient times to the present day. They have looked for ways to better understand their causes and purposes. Research on the subject has led to many different ideas that have been shown in movies and TV. Further psychological research has shown that this type of dreaming can be used as a form of sleep therapy in new ways.
