So I haven't posted in such a long time, mostly because of school demands etc. But I thought I'd share that I've been seeing a psychologist for a while about my daydreaming. At first it was really scary opening up to someone about it, but now it actually feels really good to have someone to share it with. It certainly hasn't stopped or reduced the daydreaming, but it's helped me understand a little better why I do it and how I can manage it :)

Something practical was a 'grounding exercise'. How it works is: when you realise you are daydreaming and need to concentrate in order to complete a task etc, you ask yourself on the spot to name five blue things in the room, five sounds you can hear, something you can physically feel on your body, and other things like that. the exercise is supposed to make you more aware of your surroundings and help remind you to bring your thoughts back to reality, even if only for a few short minutes.

Sometimes it helped me, other times I wouldn't do it because I liked the feeling of forgetting about reality. But it's definitely useful to try :)

What advice did the psychologist pass on regarding managing the MDD?
