I like to daydream in the weirdest spots and during the most inopportune times. My mind seems to travel all over the broad spectrum of topics, from a future love to revenge on my neighbors. I wake up feeling like I am still in my own little world for a minute, then reality hits me and—bam—I must regain a grip on what I was doing or who was speaking.
I also use daydreams as an effective method with which to deal with stress, since it blocks out my problems and troubles and carries me away to a land of happier environments. I can hide in my head until my body has calmed down enough to sort through whatever is disrupting me. The dreams give me strength and courage to deal with life’s issues and/or ideas that I had not thought of before.
Some places I daydream:
My church (I know, I shouldn’t do that, but sometimes I can’t help it.)
While laying on my driveway watching the stars or clouds
In the car
At the store
In my room (well if not there, then where?)
So, in conclusion, I am encouraging you to take time out of your busy day to close your eyes, take some deep, cleansing breaths, and let your mind wander to your very own private “Shangri-La.”
