Psychology -> Area of Study 3 - States of Consciousness -> Waking consciousness -> Characteristics of Normal Waking Consciousness -> Daydreaming

Daydreaming

Daydreams are another example of lowered awareness. Daydreaming involves drifting off into a world of fantasy. Although awake, the person experiences a reduced awareness of external stimuli. Daydreaming usually occurs while the person is engaged in automatic processes where minimal attention to the task is required.

Daydreaming is often considered as a waste of time however, psychologists maintain that daydreaming can serve a variety of useful functions. It can help you relax, alleviate boredom and endure frustration.

(For more information about daydreaming, see the final dot point of this area of study.)
