Dream On! 5 Long Lasting Health Benefits of Daydreaming

Ever just stare off into space? You should. Here are 5 healthy benefits of daydreaming.

Don’t let those Debbie Downers wake you from your perfect day-time fantasy. They may not realize it but daydreaming is good for you! Here are the 5 long-lasting, health benefits of daydreaming.


Daydreaming creates a link to the ability to empathize with others. That’s because we are creating “something that we haven’t experienced ourselves,” says Daily Health Post. So our fantasies easily allow us to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes.

When daydreaming we are using our creativity. And using our creativity helps us recall information down the line.


Fantasizing about our future and the life that we desire helps us tap into our wants and needs. We become more self-aware as we realize our purpose.
