Daydreaming is only for children

Daydreaming

Last week, I posted a video challenging my audience to take 5 minutes to daydream.

Why?

To help them break out of the routine that they’ve locked themselves into.

You see, if we’re not careful we get stuck doing the same thing day in day out thinking that we do not have a choice.

Now, this is okay if life looks how you want it to.

The question is, what if life doesn’t look how you want it to?

You do have a choice. You can continue as is.

Or.

You can decide to change.

If life is okay and you’re happy with how it is going then this post is not for you.

However, if you want help in making that change then read on.

It’s easy for me to tell you to change as long as you know what you want to change.

What if you don’t?

That’s where daydreaming will help.

Time, self aware, confidence

Daydreaming allows you to break down any barriers that your reality contains. After all, a daydream is not real so barriers are unnecessary which also means that you believe that anything is possible. 

Now to begin.

Some basics to be aware of

You can take as much or as little time as you want to do this exercise. If you can only spare 5 minutes then that will do. Everyone will be able to find 5 minutes.

You also need to be ready to use all of your senses. You need to fully immerse yourself in your daydream. See it in full colour, allow yourself to turn the volume up on all the sounds and let the feelings of what is happening take over your body.

Plus make sure that you’re not going to be disturbed so that you can fully experience what is going on without being distracted by the thought of being interrupted. 

Book ending the day

It starts with how you want your day to begin. When you wake up, where are you? What do you see? What is the first thing you see?

And similarly, how does your day end? How do you wind down? How does it feel?

How do you spend your time?

Are you working? If so, where are you? What type of work are you doing? Why are you doing this type of work? Who do you work with? How do you end your work day?

What else happens during your day? What do you eat? Where do you go? Who do you meet?

Remember, you are the creator of your daydream. Ensure that you’re doing all the things you want to do as well as being with the people you want to be with.

You have all the resources you need in your daydream so everything and anything is possible.

How would you be different if your daydream was your reality?

Our experiences will naturally change us. Therefore, instead of waiting to live your daydream to become a different person become that person now. 

I know I make it sound really simple. That’s because it is. How does the person you are in your daydream walk, talk and hold themselves? You can do that now. Step into being that person now.

Make it reality

Obviously, things don’t just happen. You need to take action. So decide which one small action will start you on your path to making your daydream a reality now. Then once that is completed, choose your next small action. This will start to build momentum which will get you moving towards what you want your life to be like.

You see, daydreaming is a great exercise to do. It gives you the freedom to create the life that you want in a safe space. Then if you like what you see you can then take steps to make it your reality. 

Are you ready to daydream?
