Showers really are idea generators

by Aaron

It always seems like I get my best ideas when I’m in the shower. Strange, isn’t it?

It’s funny, in college I used to schedule my showers so that they would correspond with studying plans or while I was working on a hard problem. Whenever I came out of the shower, I almost always had a solution to the problem I was working on. Sometimes it’s hard to hold back from taking two showers in a day if I’m trying to solve several problems :)

I don’t know what it is though. Maybe the moist air and soothing water opens up some pathways in your brain that causes you to more clearly see the solution. It would be interesting to see if there are any studies on this.
