Daydreaming and running

When I go running I cannot help but daydream, even though I am trying to control. My daydreaming. When I am moving, walking or sitting in a car I automatically daydream and have to stop myself, but it seems the faster the motion e more compelled I am, so running is just so automatic.  My daydreams are not just thinking about day to day life, here more like fantasys which are enjoyable.


however when I get bored of daydreaming I get bored of running. Or when running gets harder and I have to go slower, the daydreaming isn't as fun so I just want to give up. I think I just have to take my self from reality when it is t stimulating, music makes me daydream but even without music I would still do it. 


I was wondering if anyone else had this problem or if you just stay in he present when running.  I want to run for longer periods but when I've been daydreaming I can feel anxious after so don't. Really want to continue the run

This sounds like something DR Nick may be able to help you with

It seems to me like the daydreaming is the problem not the running. Especially if it makes you feel anxious afterwards.

If you really are off somewhere else in your head all the time rather than just mulling over day to day stuff like most people do, that isn't always such a great thing.

Why don't you want to engage with what you're doing? Is there something in your life you're trying to avoid?

Just because  I daydream without knowing it , and I enjoy it so it is addictive. However I am trying to stop. I find it hard to not think about anything , whether I am having fantasys or just worrying or planning, I am always thinking.

You have a mild form of epilepsy

Have you tried meditation to help you control your thoughts?

I think you had too much to dream last night.

Try some Electric Prunes (uncanny that is the CD in my car)
