Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
After several failed attempts to stop my MD, I've come to terms with the fact that I may never be able to get rid of it. In the world today, there is just too much stimulus for me to make a solid attempt at stopping. Especially now that I'm going into a career field wherein I have to sit on a computer most of the day.
I decided to approach it from a different perspective, why don't I try to condition my compulsion into something positive. So, instead of walking around rubbing my hands and daydreaming for hours, I can instead work on my portfolio of projects or something similar.
For me, at least, the only times where I have control is when I'm working on something already and I'm "in the zone". So, when I get an urge to walk around and daydream, instead I immediately open up a project and start working until the burst of energy I get settles down.
I've tried several other methods like: Trying my hand at writing stories, Trying to learn to draw or use a 2d modeling software, fidget spinners, Listening to calming music for very long periods of time. I'm more hopeful for this method since I'm more passionate about coding than the more artistic things.
Anyone else have a similar way of controlling your MD?
