Do you want to feel more relaxed, be entertained and even receive creative solutions to many of the problems you face?
The solution to all of this lies in a simple activity we all did as kids, but something we rarely do anymore.
I’m talking about daydreaming.
Daydreaming is a magical portal you can enter into any time to explore and have fun with your thoughts, memories, dreams and fantasies.
Now I’m not saying that you should daydream while you are engaged in some activity. Instead, what I’d suggest is to set aside some time daily to do nothing other than letting your mind wander for a while.
Many of us have been conditioned to believe that day-dreaming is a pointless activity.
But some of the most renowned artistic creations and scientific breakthroughs have been conceived in daydreams.
Albert Einstein was an avid daydreamer and is believed to have begun his theory of relativity while he daydreamed.
George Lucas, the creator of the Star Wars movie series, once remarked, “I spent most of my time in school daydreaming and managed to turn it into a living.”
In my own life, I have observed what a useful activity day-dreaming can be, and I have received plenty of creative ideas while day-dreaming.
There are lots of ways in which you can approach daydreaming. You can gaze into the sky, lie on your bed, simply sit, walk in nature, or put on your favourite piece of music and let your mind wander and see where it takes you.
Our minds usually tend to be in a hurry to jump from one activity to the next, and whether we realise it or not, this makes us feel restlessness and ungrounded.
Taking some time out to daydream every day helps me slow down, relax and makes me feel content and at peace.
Daydreaming is one of those rare activities that require absolutely no effort. To reap its numerous benefits, all you need to do is refrain from keeping yourself constantly occupied.
