    It is said talking to yourself

    and daydreaming are both habits that promote compassion and empathy and help your mind in other ways. My wife just enjoys embarrassing me by saying "are you talking to yourself again?"

    Returning to reality

    after a daydream makes everything seem a little more impossible, yet I continue to do it. They come when you least expect it. When the conversation dies and a room falls silent, or when the idea of you is the only thing which can help me sleep. For second, a minute, an hour I...

    In school, during the most boring lessons,

    I became a singer in my head. I was either singing punk-rock or heavy metal. At home, I'm usually some mage or knight-commander in a fantasy world-- being it's destroyer or only hope. For less extreme reverie, I'd see myself traveling the world, writing a novel while I'm...

    My head is like a never ending machine of

    strange adventures. That movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is pretty much about me. I love writing and creating new worlds. I'd like to share stories if anyone would be interested?

    Daydreaming is just a way

    for me to dream of how my life could be, and so I don't have to listen to my teachers or my mom. It just gets me away from reality on my opinion :)

    Daydreaming 'a Lot'.

    I daydream a lot about playing the violin, the flute, the harp, singing, dancing,... and so many other beautiful things. When I daydream I pretend I have all the possibilities, I see myself with a violin making the most beautiful music, I hear it and feel so much passion for it...

    I daydream about being someone else a lot

    or being with someone. I think it's weird sometimes cuz I get so caught up in it, I lose reality. I get excited about these fictional experiences that I've made up, just to be disappointed.

    I daydream because my surroundings are sh-t.

    (I'm annoyed today so i might erase this and then write a new one once i feel like it, but this is the shortest answer i can come up with on why i zone out, basically.)

    Daytime Wanderings

    My mind simply drifts off...into a wooded area. A small foot path is worn into the ground. Flowers tangled in plants, the tall grass waves slightly, vines and ivy link across the tops of trees and hang down slowly swaying in the wind. The sound of insects and birds fill in around...

    I daydream a lot, it's how I escape from

    everything. I probably daydream too much, I'll even act out what I daydream sometimes without even noticing, which can be really embarrassing... But I love it. My mind is my sanctuary, I am constantly living in my head.

    Daydreaming Too Much?

    I daydream a lot. Often to the point where reality gets blurred with imagination. If I imagine that I'm someone else, I can't help but talk like them for a few minutes. If I imagine that I break my foot, I can't help but limp around for a moment or two. It takes me a while to...
