This article on "Day Dreaming ” will boost your confidence to be successful in Extempore Speech:
Day dreaming is the process of dreaming visionary, fantasy dreams, especially one of happy, pleasant thoughts, hopes or ambitions, imagined as coming to pass, and experienced while awake. Day dreaming is something that we all indulge in. While sitting in class, working in office or while enjoying out with friends, our mind often veers away from our present surroundings and starts thinking about something that has not happened to us but we wish for it to happen. Generally, the day dreams are gay, chirpy and positive. However, the possibility of having dreadful and negative day dreams cannot be completely neglected. 
Over the years, day dreaming has been considered to be a non-constructive, useless and lazy activity.  It is considered to be a useless way of killing time that can instead be used for some productive activity. The goodness of day dreaming also depends on the kinds of thoughts that you allow to come into your mind. More or less, day dreaming is often dismissed as something unconstructive and useless. However, recent studies and researches done by different psychologists have proved that day dreaming is not always a useless activity. Here are some of the arguments and reasons that the psychologists give to establish day dreaming as a useful activity: 
1.To start with, one of the best advantages of day dreaming is that they prove to be a stress buster and often a wonderful way of relaxing the mind. Many a times, a person day dreams when they want to take a break from everything that is in their present immediate surroundings. In such a case, when they day dream, their mind takes a break and starts to imagine things that make them happy or chirpy and also refresh them up. Thus, day dreaming is good because it provides the mind with a diversion that it very often needs. 
2.Day dreaming allows a person to decide his plan of action for the future. Sometimes when a person is too much willing to achieve something, he day dreams about how he is going to achieve it. In such a case, his day dreams are filled with thoughts of his future plan of action that he is going to adopt to achieve his motive or aim.  
3.Day Dreaming allows a person to have some time with them and cogitate over who they really are. In this time and age, when people find it really hard to find out some time for them, day dreaming allows a person to extract himself from all the work and think about the things that he really wishes to do in his life. Thus, sometime day dreaming provides you with the time to extract thoughts from your inner self. Apart from this, day dreaming also increases the creativity of a person. When a person goes over the same thoughts again and again, they reach a stage where they have thought things over and over and have reached the perfect stage. Thus, day dreaming is also necessary because they allow people to do things that they would not do in normal situations. 
Because of the all the above stated reasons, day dreaming has now been established as a constructive activity. However, if not censored, it can still become unproductive and useless. To start with a person should not waste all his time and energy on dreaming about things and never doing much to achieve them in reality. Thus, the first thing that needs to be censored is the time that you spend on day dreaming. Give only the appropriate time and do not waste any.  Secondly, also censor the thoughts that move into your mind while you are day dreaming. If you are dreaming about something constructive, dream on and in a good way. However, if you are day dreaming about something that is useless or destructive to you, divert your mind instantly to other thoughts or some other work. Day dreaming is not bad as long as you know why you are doing it. 
As Neil Gaiman said, “You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we're doing it.” Do day dreaming. Get ideas. Notice them. And get down to work.
