I also use daydreaming as a means of relaxation. I was told to do that years ago by a man in a hospital whom I was with (without going into further detail of why I was there), but he mentioned to fixate on a spot in the room you’re in, and hyperfocus/hyperfixate your mental energy on that spot until you feel your mind wandering away, but to continually resist any and all temptations to move your attention away from the spot in the room for at least 10-15 minutes. I find myself naturally doing this, and I have not really had to “force” myself to do this for some time because I innately find myself doing sort of a similar thing already, but I’ve always found that technique to be useful for me (especially at bedtime).
