rsz_lifebrain.jpg Lucid dreaming in lockdown: sweet dreams are made of this?

Being in the driving seat of your wildest dreams can be a thrilling ride - perfect escapism for a world in lockdown. And sleep science research is showing that lucid dreams may be helpful in reducing anxiety and depression in some people. But what if escapism becomes avoidance? What happens when the division between what's real and fantasy is blurred? And would it be okay to condone taking prescription drugs to induce lucid dreams purely for pleasure?
