I've found a meditation technique that i think it could be very useful for being more focused and daydreaming less. Mindfullness is an ancient Buddhist practice which is very relevant for life today. Mindfulness is a very simple concept.  Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way:  on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.  This increases awareness, clarity and acceptance of our present-moment reality, (Helping control the MDD).Mindfulness is indicated to be done in…Continue

Egg Timer

Started by Reverie Oct 13, 2016. 0 Replies

I know it doesn't sounds very serious but it actually helped me quite a lot. When I wanted to daydream (and that involves pacing in circles with headphones), I would put an egg timer and as it went off I would stop my daydreaming ritual and do something like wash the dishes, read something for uni or anything that needed to be done. Of course that many times I did re-set it, prolonging my full-blown daydreaming sessions, but over time I noticed that I found it easier to 'go back' and control…Continue

Help with MD through observation

Started by Alan Puntegard Apr 28, 2015. 0 Replies

Hello, greetings from Texas. I have been suffering from MD for quite a while now. It first started when I was in high school and suffered from anxiety problems. I remember going to the counselor a couple of times and telling her about my anxiety. She later advised me to imagine myself in a scenario where I could be somewhere relaxing, or maybe a scenario where I could be a famous athlete. After taking her advise, I started building a strong bond to these scenarios, which led to my daydreaming…Continue

NLP effective for daydreming?

Hello! I just want to share a strategy for controlling daydreams that I've adapted from a NLP phobia cure. It is also used for the treatment of alcoholism and other addictions, so why wouldn't help for MD? The best time to try is in bed, just after waking up or before falling to sleep, but you can do it anytime. Pick a reccurent or particullary anoying daydream, and imagine yourself stepping out of it. Imagine you are watching your daydream on a TV. Then, dry the colour out of the image and…Continue

Meditation helps, really a lot:Just set aside 5 minutes per day when you are not feeling sleepy. Find a quite place to sit. Close your eyes and don't do or think anything. The key is you should not pressurize your brain for anything. Now, if the thoughts come, let them come. Just observe them. Don't initiate any new thoughts! Just observe the thoughts as they come and subside. Slowly you will find a time when you will have absolutely no thoughts.This takes time and patience. Any beginner needs…Continue

I've noticed that singing stops me from daydreaming. I don't know what makes it effective, but it might be the same thing that makes talking to other people effective.I think it'd be useful any time you're alone- the car maybe?- but I typically sing in the shower because it doesn't seem out of the ordinary to other people.Continue

I suppose this is odd, but sometimes (like today) when I am feeling particularly frustrated with my daydreaming and don't know how to stop I just come to this page or read about maladaptive daydreaming. That brings me back to reality pretty fast I think.
