Maladaptive Daydreaming: Is There Association Between Rocking Back and Forth and Daydreaming?

Maladaptive Daydreaming: Is There Association Between Rocking Back and Forth and Daydreaming? maladaptive daydreaming: is there association between rocking back and forth and daydreaming?

Today, I’ll be addressing the question of the association between rocking back and forth or swinging and maladaptive daydreaming. Some people have asked why they find themselves rocking back and forth every time they try to study or sleep, and they can’t seem to stop it. So, what is the association? Let’s first understand this. Do we really need to know the association between something we feel we can’t control and another thing we can control?

Actually, no, you don’t need to associate two things to find meaning. What you really need to do is dig deeper into why you can’t manage this or why it’s happening to you and someone else. That’s how you gain deeper insights into what you’re going through. It’s not about associating, like this happens because of this. When you associate things, you tend to draw your own conclusions, and even if I explain that this happens because of something, it’s still a conclusion.

Instead, you can ask yourself, “How am I feeling during the moments when I’m rocking back and forth? Am I feeling stressed, anxious, or tense before or during the rocking? What am I feeling afterward? Am I feeling guilty or anxious?” By examining your feelings during these moments, you can gain a better understanding of what’s happening. Something that is compulsive, addictive, or something you do without your conscious control means that there’s another part of your subconscious mind driving this behavior, usually to relieve stress.

For example, when you study and need to concentrate, unresolved thoughts and emotions from your past may surface. When these emotions come to the surface, your subconscious mind may suggest activities like daydreaming, rocking back and forth, or swinging as a way to relax or cope. When the subconscious mind takes over, you might feel like you have no conscious control over your actions, as if you’re on autopilot.

So, don’t focus on associating it with something else. I’ll explain the association; there might be one. However, concentrate on reclaiming your life from the unprocessed aspects of your past that you’ve never healed, whether it’s trauma or other unresolved issues. The key is to work on processing those emotions, whether through therapy or personal reflection. It can be challenging because of your own biases, and you might make incorrect associations.

Don’t always try to come up with associations, as they can often lead to incorrect conclusions. The act of rocking back and forth, for example, might have a connection, as it creates a rhythmic sensation that deepens daydreaming. However, the primary focus should be on reclaiming your life from the grip of unprocessed past experiences. Seek help and address the underlying issues rather than searching for explanations.
