Daydreaming and Why It's Good For You

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
positive outcomes.  

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!

  1. YeeHaw! I'm thinking that day dream might turn into a nap!

  2. Love the fabric patterns on everything. Vintage florals are one of my favorites. Great pictures. Yes, would love to take a nap on those pillows and bed :)

  3. I agree daydreaming is very healthy for the mind and soul.

  4. I think my left side of the brain has taken over. I cannot daydream anymore. I need a vacation in the funny farm ~

  5. I often daydream when I'm driving. I haven't turned on the radio on my car in years. I like the silence. I like to think in the silence.

  6. Cheer up, sleepy jean.
    Oh, what can it mean.
    To a daydream believer, oh yes I am definitely a believer of day dreaming! Just wish I had more time to do it. I think it's time to make time. Right now I'm in the process of moving but as soon as that's accomplished I'm gonna get in some daydream time!

  7. I am a great fan of daydreaming. I do it when walking....I walk by a house I like and I am off redecorating it, picking on their choice of colors you know what that is like. In seventh grade ( home Ec) during sewing class while winding bobbins on the sewing machine, my teacher Miss Neeves would say "now you can build your castles in Spain" while waiting for the bobbin to fill. To this day I think of that while waiting for the bobbins to fill.

  8. Imagine that! WhenI'm daydreaming I'm actually being productive
