Does lucid dreaming affect the amount of sleep you get? Isn't the point of dreaming to turn your mind off and let it recover. So if you are staying lucid, your body is not doing it's full recovery correct?

That's still almost nightly. Growing up I had frequent nightmares, so my mom taught me how to manipulate my dreams. I noticed on the nights that I was able to manipulate my dreams I felt more tired. But I think this is different than lucid dreaming, where you are aware that you are going to be manipulating your dreams. Mine I would just do whenever I felt myself get into a scary situation. Thanks for answering honestly.
