“At long last, the doodling daydreamer is getting some respect,”
writes John Tierney in the NYT.
Researchers have found that daydreaming is “remarkably common — and often quite useful. A wandering mind can protect you from immediate perils and keep you on course toward long-term goals. Sometimes daydreaming is counterproductive, but sometimes it fosters creativity and helps you solve problems.”
Psychologists also found that people’s minds seem to wander 30 percent of the time during waking hours.
As I was writing this post my mind was wandering too, wondering what new photos were up on Daydream Lily, a blog that turns the concept of daydreaming into a beautiful virtual reality.
Dare I ask: How much do you daydream and usually what about?
