    Society has put so much emphasis on being “connected” and “engaged” that we’ve forgotten how to be bored. The shower provides a rare opportunity for you to be alone with your thoughts.

    I like to shower in as dark a possible a bathroom. I find it enhances the creativity effect by a huge amount. Also the slight risk of an accidental, life altering fall from not being able to see keeps it spicy!

    TLDR

    Focus shift: Stepping away from immediate goals encourages “positive daydreaming,” a constructive form of mind wandering that fosters unexpected connections and sparks inspiration.

    Reduced pressure: The relaxed atmosphere of the shower lowers inhibitions and anxieties, allowing us to think freely and explore creative avenues without judgment.

    Sensory stimulation: The sound and feel of water can act as a trigger, stimulating the brain and promoting new thought patterns
