Mindfulness is all about staying in the present and being aware of everything that is going on in our surroundings in a non-reactive way. If we live our lives in the present moment we are supposed to attain true happiness.  For us maladaptive daydreamers learning how to be mindful is phenomenally important as it means trying to let go of our fantasy world and to live in the present.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is basically a meditation technique that trains the mind to stay in the present moment. A very helpful technique then if you’re a maladaptive daydreamer. Mindfulness is supposed to alleviate stress, anxiety and even depression and apparently people who practice mindfulness notice a 20% improvement in symptoms of anxiety and depression than those who practice something else.
