All of us have found ourselves daydreaming at times. We think about things we want, situations we hope to experience, or even unrealistic ideas that captivate us. Often, people speak of daydreaming negatively. People may think of daydreaming as being lazy or unproductive; however, this is not always the case. There can be tremendous benefits to daydreaming. Here are a few of the benefits that we can experience when we relax into our thoughts. 


#1. Solves Problems


When we are relaxed, we can think about our options and choices in any given situation. Doing so can help us to solve problems. We can think about each of our options and play them out in our minds. 


#2. Lessens Anxiety and Stress


Daydreaming can help us calm our minds and bodies by thinking about positive situations. When we can fill our minds with positivity and pleasure, we can let go of the stress that consumes us. 


#3. Helps Create Goals


What do you find yourself daydreaming about? Do you dream of having a specific job or living somewhere specific? Leading a particular lifestyle? If you find yourself constantly thinking of certain things, it is clear that you want to accomplish them. Create goals that will help you get there. Remember that even small steps are progress towards your goals. If you can’t stop daydreaming about something, go and accomplish it. 


#4. Expands Creativity


Daydreaming can help us think outside of the box and expand our creativity. Our minds create a safe place to think about options and various ways to complete activities. We can daydream about that art project and doing it entirely differently than we usually would have. Or maybe we are working on a novel, and our daydreams propel us in new ways that we had never thought of before.
