Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
When i'm in my MD trance I often sit on my sofa, listening to music, imagining me playing pro baseball (my dream). When I do this though i'll be there for hours rocking my upper half of my body? I'm 15 and because of this website i'm starting to force myself to stop and realize that if I want to accomplish my dream i have to stop, cold turkey. I was wondering though, does anybody body rock when they are in there MD trance?
I do occasionally, but only when I'm in bed, and have already sat up because I sat up in a DD. I'll usually start rocking then. Mostly I just do facial movements, though.
I do the same and my eyes stare into space. I rock my body when I'm near my computer.
I pace, gesture and change facial expression, but no rocking incidentally. Music is one of my main fuels for daydreaming, too.
So you're hoping to play baseball professionally? That would be pretty exciting. I think you're right that MD would seriously interfere with that, but you're only 15 and the earlier one tries to break a habit the better their chances, right? Good luck to you.
I do this all the time, but it's when I stand against walls. I also pace, make facial expressions and shake objects in my hand (I've done this with coins, balls, cloths, etc). I remember when I was a little kid and my family went to go visit my grandparents when I would sit on their rocking chair for hours rocking back and fourth while my mind wondered. I've had MD my entire life LOL.
Sadly, I wish my repetitive motion was as less-noticeable as yours.
For me, my dreams are most vivid when I'm sprinting. You read right. Flat out sprinting. My family has panned it off as me being energetic, but that's not the case. And I keep getting yelled at for running around our house cause I keep crashing into things and people and I think I actually broke one of our floorboards from running across it so much
I sometimes dance, lmao.
