Whether it be fantasising about someone you went on a date with and dreaming about your wedding day, or about the career you envision yourself in, or even about how you wish you looked... fantasising can be dangerous and keep you from living in the now. Of course, it can also be class to have a little daydream too. We talk about fantasising in all its forms and how it affects us.
Off the back of our latest live show (that we don't have a recording of due to tech difficulties, SOZ), we talk about staying present and reflecting on big moments, small moments or just checking in with how we're feeling. We talk about how we constantly looking to the future, and having our heads in our phones is affecting us... and how we try to be mindful of that.
