Try to do some mentalrobics every single day!

One technique for becoming lucid in a dream is to try to read something. For some reason, words are very impermanent in the dream world and often change between glances. Find some writing and read it. Then look away and read it again. If the words stay the same, then you are probably awake. If the words change, then you are certainly asleep.

To get in the habit of performing this test, you will need to do it when you are awake. This could be as simple as looking at your digital watch twice whenever you check the time. If you are dreaming, the numbers will change between glances.

Another way to do this is to take a business card and write, "Am I dreaming?" on the back. Keep this card in your pocket and take it out from time to time. Read the question and then flip the card over. Wait a second and flip it back. If the question has changed, then you are dreaming and can become lucid.
