Just wanted to let you guys know that cutting out music has helped reduce my daydreaming a lot. Well like 30%, which consisted of  my main continous daydream.  Up until yesterday i had went about 13 days without listening to my mp3player.

I realized listening to music on a stero is better for me than listening to it in earbuds/earphones. When i listen to it in earphones it's like going directly to my brain LOL. Anyhoo during that week if music was playing in the car or anywhere else it didn't really trigger my daydreaming.

Then of course yesterday i got the song "I don't care, i love it" stuck in my head so i went on youtube to listen to it. And after replaying it 20 times i was like "let me look up other music" which i continued to do for like 4 hours lol. Then of course when i woke up this morning i started to daydream. Not as bas as i used to when i used to wake up on Saturday mornings but still i enought to get me dissapointed in myself.

But anywys: Cutting out Music through earphones and youtube (throw Pandora radio in there too) helps a lot. Imagine having a 30%  clearer head.

I'm gonna continue cutting music out.

Just wanted to give you guys an update:

Well last week i went back to school monday and didn't really handle the change from summer to school well. Plus i started listening to my mp3 player on the bus to school each morning. Then on Friday i went to see Insidious 2 (movies are another one of my triggers but i wanted to hang out with mi friend on friday the 13th) with a friend which caused me to have a bunch of random daydreams and scenarios.

THEN i went home and talked to my sister and her bf until like 3 am in the morning, going to bed around 4 am, then waking up at 7:50am. (Not sleeping enough is another one of my triggers).

So what happens when you combine 3 different triggers (music, movies and not enough sleep) together with sudden change (Summer to school) ? Answer is a 4 day long daydream fananza starting from Friday and lasting until this afternoon. 

If your thinking about going back on even one of your triggers (i.e. music) DON'T, because one trigger is going to lead to more triggers and is going to cause you to have intense daydreaming for days (especially if you've been cutting out those triggers for a while). Stay strong, keep busy, meditate, exercise and STAY away from triggers!!

I'm in the same boat! I've just recently cut out music. Let me tell you it wasn't easy, but it's helping tremendously!Music was my main trigger and cutting it off has reduced my daydreams by a landslide. I have more clarity of mind and I'm so much more focused. I can actually get things done! I'm praying for the day when I can listen to music like a "normal" person and not imagine myself in these outrageous scenarios.

I know this would help me so much, but I just love music too much. It's my favorite thing in the world. I wonder if I could cut it out temporarily...Cause there's no way in hell I'm gonna stop listening to it forever!

I listen to music using earphones. I tried listening without them but it's just awkward. I get embarrassed so I put my earphones back on. I don't want other people to critique my music tastes or judge me for them. Sometimes I listen to very "girly" music, anime music, or risque music and I know that if I listen without headphones, I would blush.
