Daydreaming causes sleepiness and reduced mental capacity?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Emma Apr 7, 2015. 22 Replies

Does anyone here feel that they're not as smart as they used to be? I used to be able to add, subtract, multiply and divide small numbers in my head quite easily. These days I will struggle to do…Continue

How do you motivate yourself to stop daydreaming for a while to do something important? Whether it may be to complete an assignment for school, or find a job, or something small like doing grocery, I…Continue

Emma replied to Feng's discussion Daydreaming causes sleepiness and reduced mental capacity?
"Yes to all of the above.  It's alarming.  As to the sleepiness, here is what I think.  A) I daydream at night and lose sleep. Therefore I am sleepier during the day.  B) I like to daydream in the morning as I wake up,…"

"I know exactly what you're talking about. I feel like my working memory isn't what it should be, and is worse after a period of daydreaming. I also feel like daydreaming takes up all my mental energy so when it comes time to actually focus…"

"Hmm...I don't feel mentally tired all the time or have problems doing basic math (maybe because I'm still in high school), but I do have a lot of problems with short-term memory."

"Even I have the same problem. Being a mathematics student, excessive daydreaming affects my studies a lot. I used to be one of the toppers in class. But now I can't focus well."

Alvi replied to Feng's discussion Daydreaming causes sleepiness and reduced mental capacity?
"I'm not saying its a cause and consequence. Theta waves are linked to poor concentration and focus for example in cases of ADD and for me there is a direct link to excessive daydreaming and tiredness etc. You can increase Theta waves just…"

Eretaia replied to Feng's discussion Daydreaming causes sleepiness and reduced mental capacity?
"I understand perfectly what you're saying and I agree 100% that there's a relationship between these issues but I can't agree with what you say is a cause and consequence. Theta waves don't impair the ability to concentrate.…"

Alvi replied to Feng's discussion Daydreaming causes sleepiness and reduced mental capacity?
"Its just a theory but I find that a lot of people who daydream do complain of tiredness and lack of concentration. Its the first negative on the list of cons on this site. One of my main problems with the amount I daydream is I can't…"

Eretaia replied to Feng's discussion Daydreaming causes sleepiness and reduced mental capacity?
"Alvi, increase in theta brainwaves would be just a symptom. Million different conditions give you excessive theta. First comment by Alice Bassett nailed it. Daydreaming doesn't cause cognitive decline or tiredness or lack of concentration.…"

Alvi replied to Feng's discussion Daydreaming causes sleepiness and reduced mental capacity?
"I know this is a really old post but thought I'd add to it as it is something I have been looking into a lot recently and I have a bit of a theory as to why MD often have a sort of comedown after periods of DD.  I really struggle with…"

Tinkerbell replied to Feng's discussion How do you motivate yourself to do something?
"I tell myself that it is very important that I get up in that instant because I have loads to do.  As my MD is triggered off by feeling bored or depressed.  If I am really low I will give myself a hug and say, "Everything will be…"

Feng replied to marla's discussion driving
"For me, I can drive and daydream at the same time without any problems. I can drive fairly automatically and the scary thing is, is that I sometimes get a shock that I've arrived at my destination without realising it for a few seconds. I…"

Feng replied to Nicola's discussion Ideal career for a person with MD??
"For me, it's the opposite, I daydream so much I can't concentrate for too long. I need a job that doesn't require a lot of on-the-job thinking and concentration, something I can do automatically after some level of experience and…"

Feng replied to thetxbelle's discussion When your daydream has played out
"Yes, it happens for me all the time. Although I daydream about the same people, my scenarios changes often. I can't daydream about the same scenario for too long. Eventually it will become boring for me, usually in about a week. It's like…"

Feng replied to Carrie's discussion Do you have conscious control over your daydreams?
"Personally, I think MD is mainly a symptom of another underlying problem. Reading through some of the posts of this forum give me the idea that some people develop MD because they want something to escape to when something in the real world gets…"
