Daydreaming throughout the day

I noticed that anything that tends to reduce my daydreaming time (me time) makes me very very vinegarish.

Also, my productivity dips significantly if I don't get to daydream as much as I need it. For eg. I approximately need a minimum of 3 hours of daydreaming in a day. If I am unable to daydream for 3 hours at least, my day starts detoriating very quickly and I end up being very lethargic and cranky.

I am making this post because sometimes I find it concerning that my productivity is significantly dependent on my daydreaming time.

Also, I feel that half the day, I am floating outside my body. It is weird but pleasant too.

Another related thing is this - I also need lucid dreaming time - at least 30 minutes and fantasy time - at least 1 hour and nap time - at least 1 hour

That is a whopping 5 hours requirement in total I need to stay sane and not cranky and extremely productive.

Anyway, do you face this? How do you deal with it?

I think best when I walk, brightest ideas come then. Brisk walk, many times at night, mind wanders to pleasant places.

What do you daydream about? Is it because you are INTJ that you are able to daydream? I cannot daydream I have aphantasia.

@Animekitty I got aphantasia but that does not hinder my daydreaming at all

I have trouble holding a thought in my head and manipulating it. I call it ADD but I have no problem doing math. I just cannot sit and do nothing but be in my head with no external stimulation. What I'm saying is that I have poor working memory and cant just be in my head for long periods. What exactly is it you do in your head @BurnedOut

Either I am enjoying a music video in my head or I am working on some theory. Sometimes, I am just imagining various scenarios. Kind of escaping reality
