Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Do you try to limit the amount of time you daydream? I usually can't limit it really because even when I am doing other activities I daydream and lose focus.
Have you tried to set aside some time where you just focus on daydreaming, like for 2 hours and then try not to daydream the rest of the day?
Does it help or make it worse to try and limit this?
Yes i tried to limit time never work when o adjust a watch only work when u luv the other thing u do besides DD or know it is a need u have to do happily xcpt zat not work wz me
I don't try to limit mine since I don't see it as negative, but I'm the same way as you that my daydreaming isn't an activity I focus on at one time. My daydreams constantly go in my mind as I go about my day. There are some moments when all I'm doing is daydreaming like while I'm trying to fall asleep but they are brief.
I know personally though when I haven't had a chance to daydream I get extremely grumpy and just overall become a terrible person to be around so I have to make sure I attend to it. I can't imagine how intolerable to be around I'd be if I tried stopping lol. I also get that way when I'm interrupted mid-daydream.
I've never yet tried to limit it. I keep thinking maybe I will just for an expairiment, but it's just always there. I'm starting to wonder what the mind is like for a person without MDD because I feel like my head is always going. Do they just have blank spaces or do they think about boring stuff and life narration.
