Previously I have been discussing daydreaming and how it can hinder your ability to move forward in life and progress.
This time I want to focus on the positives and how you can use your daydreams to their full advantage.
Your own safe space
Daydreams essentially give you a safe space to reflect on things away from the turmoil of your day to day life.
This ‘safe space’ has several advantages including:
- Giving you a chance to really think about what you want in your life and for the future. When you daydream you are letting your mind wander to a no holds barred version of what you want.
- Daydreaming can help you to work out the process of how to get to your dream life. If you use your daydreams and that imagination of yours efficiently, you can even plan how to get to what you want in life and gain a perspective on the best way to achieve it.
This leads on to the final point
- You can plan our these processes to see what till actually work for you. In the same way that you can picture the best-case scenario; you also have the ability to imagine what could happen in many different versions, including the ones that won’t work.
If you can learn to delve into your imagination and what you daydream about, you will eventually feel empowered to take that next step to actually achieving it!
Embrace your imagination!
The ability to daydream is an important skill to have, and one that should be embraced. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to picture the best life for yourself, or discover what makes you truly happy and – just as importantly – not as happy.
Remember though, your daydreams can’t reap their true rewards until you act on them – so embrace your imagination and next week I will be delving further into acting on your daydreams.
