Lately, my MD has been so much more worse during the mornings. As soon as I wake up some times well uptill lunch in simply unable to focus on anything at all and MD uncontrollably. I feel like I'm anxious and stressed out and till afternoon I MD myself calm. Any suggestions to curb this?
I do the same. Especially since we are still in lockdown in my country, so I don't have to leave my home and convince myself to return to reality. As soon as I get up and enter the bathroom, the daydreams start rolling. I think it is because we are so used to daydream and the tired brain just begins thinking in the automatic lanes. And because the positive feelings from daydreams are like sugar on bland oatmeal in the tired mornings. I will start daydreaming when getting up, then go online when eating my breakfast, feeding my daydream with media that goes along with it, and then continue to daydream for several hours, while thinking that I will begin doing homework in 'just a minute' and in the back of my mind feeling bad, because I should have begun hours ago. Then I will spend the rest of the day fighting to get back to myself and the work I have to do, sometimes successfully, often not really.
Lately, I have found that for me, it helps a bit to listen to an audiobook while getting up and making breakfast. A book that is interesting, but not triggering, of course (for me that means no wild adventures, no wild romance, no hero story, no historical fiction). The purpose is just to not think too much about the daydream by not thinking by myself at all. And when the daydreams still begin, it is easier to get away by just returning to listening to the book again.
It also helps me a bit to watch these therapy sessions on youtube by HealthyGamer aka. Dr. K. I do this while I eat my breakfast, and they help me, since it is engaging (I don't know if that is the right word) to listen to someone else sharing their problems and insecurities (and getting understanding and help), and I cannot help but reflect on myself. My real self. This means I will sometimes end up crying and sad, but to me that is still better than daydreaming the whole day. It feels productive to think about myself instead of escaping myself.
I don't know if any of this can help you, but it works for me. The need to daydream gets turned down to maybe half of what it would be otherwise, and the hurdle to begin homework becomes smaller.
