Daydreaming is Healthy for Runners – Dr. Phil Maffetone

June 1, 2018

“Imagination is more important than knowledge; knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution” – Albert Einstein

“Becoming aware of ourselves and our surroundings (near and far) is an important feature of a healthy brain” – Phil Maffetone

Phil joins us to talk about why daydreaming is important to our health and how it can help us become better runners. We discuss the similarities of daydreaming and visualization and if we can daydream while using other sensory inputs.  We talk about how we can become better daydreamers.

Phil’s article, “Interpretation of Daydreams”
