The science of why you have great ideas in the shower

quote [ A key factor: The activity needs to last long enough “to present the opportunity to get into a different mode of thinking that we usually guilt ourselves out of,” Christoff explains. “We need to become relaxed enough mentally in order to not try to be productive or reach some goal. With habitual activities we engage in with some regularity, we don’t feel guilty about letting our minds wander—that’s when the mind can reach new places.” ]

Eureka! Give me 10 more minutes.

For peak performance meetings should be conducted in showers. Going forward, office buildings will be fitted with staff showers.

My mind wanders all day every day unless I'm busy doing something, like showering.
