Do you ever find yourself daydreaming? You zone out in the midst of your day as your mind wanders and thinks up a happy thought.
I would guess most everyone is guilty of this. I know I am!
When one daydreams, they are the one in control. Each and every person has their own idea of what a blissful thought is and what they desire to envision.
No one else has a say over what they’re musing. Hence, their daydreams cannot be taken away from them. Their mind can generate any fantasy their individual heart desires.
Daydreaming is typically condemned and viewed as a waste of time at the work place or at school.
This is because when one is not mentally present, they’re unfocused and miss out on what is taking place around them.
I do not view daydreaming as a waste of time. I think that it’s a sweet opportunity for one’s intellect to drift away and create a fantasy.
It allows people to take a mini break from their current life, maybe boring, and keep their imagination young alive.
I can testify to being a bit bored and sleepy in class during the middle of the week around my would-be naptime (as if college students have a naptime).
Though I’m hearing what’s being said, I’m not listening because my thoughts have created a pleasant visionary for me to enjoy.
Daydream topics that my mind crafts up during these times throughout my busy schedule are luxurious sleep, enjoying a dark chocolate treat or running effortlessly.
Ahhh, these daydreams put my mind at ease and bring out delight in me.
I think a daydream not only benefits one by stealing away their intellect to give them a break from their everyday schedule, but I believe it’s a healthy exercise to help boost one’s personal optimism.
Imagine how one’s confidence and hopefulness can improve by those ambitious and happy thoughts that one has throughout the day.
If I daydream about running effortlessly, it can inspire and encourage me to take a trip to the gym to jog and work on my individual health.
Many people have an attitude about daydreaming that says it is lazy and fruitless. In moderation, I don’t see how it can have that effect.
Daydreaming promotes ideas and creativeness in one’s mind. It has the advantage of causing a plan or idea in one’s professional or recreational life.
As a writer and reader, I admit that daydreaming has this valuable effect on me.
Disregard that daydreaming is lazy and a waste of time. Essentially, I believe daydreaming is a precious ability that we all have.
Who doesn’t like a little self-created happiness throughout their week that can inspire them to make their fantasies come true? I encourage us all to dream on!
