La creativeness is the secret to overcoming the difficult moments in life. How can we go about unlocking our creative mind? Science and the psychology they are investigating this very interesting issue.





In particular, the psychologist Scott Barry Kaurman, author of the book "Wired to Create: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind", explains a really simple trick to help us free your mind and stimulate creativity.

In his opinion, there is nothing simpler: our mind is activated while we take a shower. Taking a shower is relaxing but it also has many benefits that support our creative mind. In fact, in this moment of relaxation we are more likely to have some insights.

In short, the best ideas do not come when we are in front of the computer but when we are experiencing a moment of relaxation. While taking a shower or on other similar occasions, finding solutions to a problem to be solved becomes easier.

A practical alternative to the shower is a nice one walk which can be useful to clear the mind of constant thoughts and to regain concentration more easily when we return to work.

In short, from time to time it is necessary to take a break to make sure that the mind detaches itself from problems and frees its creativity. Furthermore, according to the psychologist, while we take a shower we reserve a moment of privacy in a corner of the house that is far from the typical distractions of everyday life.



According to the author and psychologist, a simple gesture that takes us away for a few moments from everyday worries can be really essential to improve ourselves. In particular, it is always important take breaks, create interruptions and diversions to let your mind wander freely.

Of course, taking a shower is not the only time to gain insights. There are those who have them while washing the dishes or while relaxing listening to music, or upon waking up or just before falling asleep.



Many of the brilliant ideas some of the most famous inventors or writers were born not when they were at work but when they were distracted or taking a walk. Nothing better than a shower, a walk or a relaxing break to stimulate our mind and to free creativity and intuition.
