Hi everyone. Eccentricish here. I am new to the DIB world. A couple of months ago, this girl from my class told me that she's reading a fanfic and the main character has Maladaptive daydreaming. Then she goes, "you know, you probably have it too." As soon as I reached my room, I surfed the net for the meaning of the term. And lo and behold! The thing that's been bugging my day to day life simce I was a child has an actual term and further more, I'm not alone in this. I was checking the net for "cure" to MD and that's how I stumbled across this beautiful site.
Q. How do you guys practice mindfulness or how to you guys cope with MD? I am in a pickle, I don't have much time until my uni finals and I can't seem to get out of my head. Any suggestion/advice/help would be great, thank you!
In general, anything that helps to keep you present and/or cope with things that happen in real life better should help reduce your need to daydream maladaptively. That’s why things like mindfulness, exercise, and journaling can be beneficial.
Don't give up what you want most for what you want now.
