Daydreaming is a time when your brain focuses on whatever it wants and it allows you to feel peace and hope and to relieve stress. I believe it is the opposite of mindfulness. Daydreaming allows you to be creative and imaginative and to solve problems. It seems to me that while our societal demands require more and more protocols, our ability to think is disappearing.

Mindfulness

BD26BEE9-D817-4025-BD1B-7343FEF0B247Mindfulness is a technique developed in 1979 for relaxation and stress reduction. Since that time, the number of articles devoted to mindfulness has grown exponentially such that by 2025, potentially all medical articles will be on mindfulness. It is nearly impossible to get through medical training without multiple lectures/courses on mindfulness. Perhaps if physicians are focused on mindfulness, they will not notice what is happening to healthcare.
