RPGs help me sleep.

Seriously. I had noticed when I was playing SWTOR more often but it kind of suck up as I was’t in a particularly bad state for sleep. Just my normal mix of over active ears and brain.
But I have been having a fair bit of anxiety which has lead to more than usual rates of sleep paralysis and the associated night terrors. Ad just generally bad dreams every night. Which leads to sleep avoidance.

But I have noticed that yes playing RPGs mean I have more lucid dreams where I have more power (flying again, now that is a major step)

And even more so if I play toons that are biotic/force users because I rarely can magic up anything non magical i dreams. So there we go. My little anecdotal reply tot his idea.
