Video Gamers Can Control Dreams - According to Study
"Playing video games before bedtime may give people an unusual level of awareness and control in their dreams."
According to a study, video gamers, especially avid gamers who spend most of their time playing games, have the sub-conscious ability to want to control their environment, this can translate into their dreams making it lucid, they are also less prone to motion sickness and have better spatial skills. It is thought that the high level of focus or concentration that gamers undergo during hours of playing becomes a habit and it infiltrates their dreams, furthermore it is often found common for gamers to experience lucid dreaming. Perhaps it could be helpful to use playing games as a means of fighting nightmares or even mental trauma.
