Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Does anyone else have a constant stream of thoughts and daydreams run through their minds from the moment they wake up? I do and it is a curse ruining the quality of my life. I hate it and wish that it would stop. I constantly feel 'empty.' I wish that my mind was calm and free of background noise. If anyone has tips to stop the constant thoughts and daydreams, sharing your tips would be very much appreciated.
I do, and it ruins my life. I just got diagnosed with ADHD so I'm hoping some meds will make it go away.
I understand how you feel, because I experienced it too. Sometimes the constant stream of consciousness is a bit overwhelming, mainly when I'm feeling depressed and have negative thoughts that I can't repress. I found some hobbies that help me with it. I play video games ,which are a very good way to turn off your brain for an indefinite amount of time (even though I wouldn't advise to do that for a long time because that can actually lead to an addiction), I also watch movies and tv shows, draw and I'm currently trying to learn a new language. I think everything that requires your full concentration will be a good answer. I hope it helps, somehow.
