The Science Behind Your Shower Thoughts

Researchers at the University of Virginia found we tend to be more creative when our mind wanders.

Have you ever had an eureka moment while taking a shower?  A new study pinpointed why those “shower thoughts” happen.   Researchers at the University of Virginia found we tend to be more creative when our mind wanders.  Something like showering is perfect, because it’s a fairly mindless activity, but not totally brainless.   An extreme example would be watching paint dry.   They say something like that is too boring to spark creativity.   But everyday tasks like showering or going for a walk let your mind wander at the perfect amount.
