Daydreams come from the right side of the brain. The feminine
and creative side. When I was a young girl in school I was often
so bored with the lessons that my mind would wander off in all
directions. Of course I was always called back into reality by my
teacher. How often had you heard someone say ~
"stop daydreaming"? It's often considered to be a waste of time
or the behavior of a lazy person. In truth, there are some very
good reasons to daydream.
The left side of the brain controls the concrete solutions. It is
the side we use when we need to go over the budget or complete
a math problem. The right side of the brain is the creative side.
It's the side we use when we creatively find ways to stretch
that budget. I have read that daydreaming is a way for us to
harness our imagination to find positive solutions to our
problems. Daydreaming allows us to safely travel between our
past memories and the future and to figure out ways to create
Scientists have studied the works of both Newton and Einstein.
They have discovered that both of these men had some of their most
important discoveries when they allowed themselves to
daydream. You may not be looking to find the answer to a
scientific question yet you can use a daydream to relax,
to improve a relationship or boost productivity just by allowing
your mind to wander a bit.
So go ahead and feel free to put your feet up and enjoy a good
daydream. After all ~ it's the feminine thing to do!
