Is daydreaming beneficial?

I am definitely one of life’s dreamers.

Daydreaming is my go to coping technique when things get tough.

There’s nothing better than escaping to a desert island or a fairy tale castle when life gets too stressful or too painful.

And now I find out that it’s good for me!

Who knew? 🤷‍♀️

I’m currently studying for my Diploma in Mindfulness and have just gotten to the part about daydreaming.

According to Christina Frank of WebMD, Daydreaming is beneficial because:

1. It can help you relax
2. It can help you manage conflict (daydream the solution)
3. It can help you manage relationships (play out possible scenarios)
4. It can help boost your productivity (Einstein daydreamed his theories first)

It also helps you to relax because it allows your mind to take a break from reality.

My mum was always bemused by my overactive imagination and said I needed to concentrate more. I wish I could tell her now that she had no need to worry.

I’m off to dream about my next ideal holiday or about winning a prize at some prestigious awards ceremony.

What would you daydream about?
