"Day 24 - The last few days, and especially today, were filled with particularly strong MD's. While I have been able to catch myself here and there, I'm definitely going to have to make some changes. I think a lack of sleep over these past…"

"I'm going to try my best to reach out for help regarding MD. I feel you on that, MD has really made it significantly more difficult for me to focus, concentrate, and work towards aspirations in real life. But I feel like there's hope. No…"

"Day 18 - Today was a productive and rewarding day. Cold showers have definitely been helping, and while my MD significantly peaked during the evening hours, I was able to eventually step back and become mindful of them."

"Day 9 - I had moderate MD on and off throughout the day. I was able to control my MD during a post-workout shower today, which is something that historically I have rarely been able to pull off. One technique that has been helping me is just…"

"Day 8 - My MD was moderately high today, but definitely I have noticed some moments of control (I am more able to transition my mind away from an MD). I will continue with the feet and mouth monitoring."

"Day 6 - Today my MD was definitely higher than it was yesterday, but nevertheless I was still able to catch myself during many moments and consciously redirect my thought patterns. In addition to focusing on grounding my feet, I will now also begin…"

"Day 5 - It's been difficult to catch and control the daydreams, but I'm making progress. Instead of getting disappointed that daydreams are popping up in my mind so often, I've started to view each daydream as an opportunity to become…"

"Day 2 - I have definitely become more conscious of my daydreams over the past two days, and am happy by the gradual progress that I am beginning to make. I will continue the foot-mindfulness technique, and see where things go."

"Day 0 - It's been a while since I've last written here. I'm taking a challenge upon myself to change aspects of my life over these next 90 days, and I want to become more conscious and aware of my MD. Whenever MD pops up, I am going…"

"Day 40 - I notice I get intense MD episodes after I go on jogs, when in the shower, and when getting ready. I am going to try to restrict the amount of time I spend daydreaming by going through mental affirmations during those times."

Ulaan Gom replied to Alisha Mansoor's discussion Guilt when having new daydreams
"I wish I knew exactly why this happens, as I believe something similar has happened to me in the past, but I never quite understood it. My main guess would be that maybe a part of you in real life either has changed or is currently in the process…"

"Day 34 - My levels of MD have definitely been fluctuating throughout the day, but having daily reflection here on wildminds has really been helping. The reflection has helped me better identify when I start to MD, and in turn, effectively step back…"
