Sleep and Creative Thinking

Those of you who are my clients know that when I say "I'll give that problem some shower time," I'm not making a joke and you're likely to get my most creative solution. I take long showers in the morning, and I tend to hatch my most ingenious and innovative ideas while taking my morning shower. Now I have scientific evidence to explain why.

According to the article, We’ll Fill This Space, but First a Nap, sleep is very important to creative thinking. During sleep we continue to process information that leads to creative solutions to problems we're trying to solve in our waking hours. So, re-evaluation of a problem after "sleeping on it," like reconsidering a problem in the shower shortly after waking, many times leads to a solution. So, I'm not kidding when I say my most valuable time of the day is the time I spend in the shower in the mornings.
