Conscious Daydreaming: It Really Is Good For You

A human mind is a lot like a television being controlled by someone pushing buttons on their remote control – quick bursts of pictures, words, and phrases all running one after the other. The brain’s default mode appears to be “wandering”. No matter what we are doing, our mind often wanders down path which baffle us.

We cannot stop our minds from racing from thought to thought. We think about the past, the future, and about things that will never happen. We have perfected the art of pretending to listen while our mind wanders. Humans spend roughly half their waking hours wool-gathering, most of it beyond our control.

There are pros and cons to a wandering mind. Some scientists think that a wandering mind is an unhappy mind. However, they also think that “zoning out” is a way for creativity and decisions to flow freely.



Conscious Daydreaming


Our mind will take us down both negative and positive roads. However, we can make a conscious effort to control our thoughts and make them work for us, and not against us. Stop and think about issues, problems or questions that bother you; now, try to bring these issues forward when you feel your mind begin to wander. This is the fine art of conscious daydreaming.

Every human on Earth daydreams, it is just a part of what our brains do. Some think it is a waste of time, others think it opens minds.

Parents and teachers want children to stay focused on what they are doing, they discourage daydreaming because they think the child is just trying to avoid the work. They don’t realize that a child learns more about their outside world when they can internally organize it.

Conscious daydreaming helps children make sense of the world around them and helps them express their own creativity. Children who constantly seem lost in daydreams appear to be more empathetic and emotionally understanding beings. We should be encouraging our children to daydream more – not less – so that they can become more aware of their own drifting thoughts and put them in order.

Our brains are actually more active while we daydream, than when we focus on mundane tasks. Daydreaming is beneficial to humans of all ages. When stuck on trying to figure out complex problems, humans would have better success if they would use their daydreams as a way to figure out the solution.

When you daydream your brain sends out certain rhythms and frequencies; use these to attract positive thoughts. Using the powers of conscious thought, you will know what thoughts go in and out of your own drifting mind.

Think of conscious thought as a way to untangle the jumbled thoughts that flow through your subconscious mind. Untangle and organize your thoughts and you will find yourself thinking more constructive things. Every time you feel your thoughts begin to tangle, use conscious thought to pull yourself them apart: Toss out the negative thoughts, while focusing on the positive.

It takes time to consciously daydream and figure out what is really bothering your mind. Once you do learn this trick you will find that living in the present is so bad after all. Being aware of your conscious thoughts puts you in a mentally happy state that leaves you feeling good all day long.

What are you waiting for? Get busy consciously daydreaming, and make yourself happier.
