Dream On! 5 Long Lasting Health Benefits of Daydreaming

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

Mr. Sandman doesn’t just visit us at night. My experience is that this dude comes any time he wants. Daydreaming gets us through many boring and monotonous situations.

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.

Empathy

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.

Enhanced Memory

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

Self-Discovery

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.

Creativity

Daydreaming forces us to think creatively, and if we channel our creativity the right way we can apply it to reality. We can go and do whatever we want!

Better Moods
