When you become aware that you are dreaming DO NOT wake up! It's a waste of an amazing experience. As was already said, it's called 'lucid dreaming'. Instead of forcing yourself to wake up simply think of what you would like to do in this dream. Let go of all the anxiety inducing stuff like having to do something work related. You can jump up to the clouds, you can fly, you can change your boss into a pig or have a date with Mila Kunis.
Everything and anything is possible.
When I first discovered lucid dreaming, I used this website to learn: lucidity.com... and I think it's still a great source of information on the subject.

It's lucid dreaming. It's where you can control what happens within your dream. It usually occurs somewhere between alpha and theta state.
Theta waves occur typically when we are in REM sleep during "normal" dreaming, and/or during meditation.
