Sweet Dreams...

"Who has not dreamed a world of bliss on a bright, sunny noon like this?" ~ William Howitt

When you daydream, you may not be achieving your immediate goal – say reading a book or paying attention in class – but your mind may be taking that time to address more important questions in your life, such as advancing your career or personal relationships.  In fact, psychiatrist Stuart Twemlow - director of the Hope Program at The Menninger Clinic in Houston says that "Daydreaming can be beneficial in many ways and, ironically, can actually boost productivity." (Full article on WebMD)  Imagine that! Allowing yourself a few minutes each day for daydreaming may actually help you become more productive in the long run! So don't feel so bad the next time you catch yourself lying on a beach with a cocktail in your hand only to wake up standing in front of the copy machine at work printing endlessly; you might just have given your brain the well deserved R&R it needed to land a deal that will get you your next big promotion!

Sweet Dreams...
