* For the purposes of the study, we define daydreaming as fantastical mental images and visual stories/narratives that are not currently part of your life. By fantastical we mean that the content of the experience is remarkable, bizarre, or unrealistic in some way. Therefore, we are not referring to acts such as simple reminiscing over past events, planning for future activities (for example, mentally preparing for a meeting with your boss), or thinking about your mental “to do” list. Examples of daydreams that can be included would be hanging out with a favorite celebrity, winning a gold medal in the Olympics (unless you are an Olympic level athlete), telling off your boss after winning the lottery, having a romantic affair with an attractive co-worker who isn’t interested in you, living in a parallel fantasy world, imagining violent, scary or tragic events that had never happened to you, engaging in heroic or rescue actions, etc. Any daydreams involving fictional characters or plots should also be included. In contrast, we are not referring to mind wandering defined as any thought or image that is unrelated to the task you are currently doing or your current surroundings. Examples of mind wandering that can be included would be while listening to a lecture you are thinking about or imagining what to eat for dinner later, while driving in traffic you reminisce about some old friend you have not seen for a while, or while reading a book you think about being upset over something that happened to you and is unrelated to the book.
