Much has been written on the significance and interpretation of nighttime dreams, but what about dreams that occur during the day? Here is the first book to explore this rarely researched phenomenon--a habit that can occupy thirty to forty percent of our waking hours and one that offers valuable clues to discovering personal happiness and satisfaction. Drawing on actual cases from her own extensive studies in the area, psychoanalyst F. Diane Barth guides readers toward an understanding and appreciation of their daydreams. She explains the significance of not only a daydream's content but the context in which it occurred. Numerous helpful exercises show readers how to decode the messages contained in their daydreams, how to tap into suppressed emotions and thoughts, and how to keep a daydream diary. Most important, Daydreaming disproves the notion that these diurnal reveries are a waste of time. In fact, as Barth points out, daydreams can provide comfort and relaxation, enhance self-esteem, act as a new tool for creativity, or point the way toward the resolution of a nagging problem.
