MILD, or meumonic induced lucid dreaming is where you wake up 5 hours after falling to sleep (this way you wake up in the middle of your REM phase - the phase where you dream) and stay awake long enough to wake your prefrontal cortex, but not so much that you can't get back to sleep (usually 10 minutes).

Then drift back to sleep with the intention of lucid dreaming, which can be done through repeating phrases like "I will lucid dream tonight" or picturing yourself becoming lucid in a dream.

I would recommend this as the first technique you use to try and lucid dream.
