Time to Think

Do you get your best ideas under the hot rain shower? Or while running or walking? That is not unusual. Sometimes, the best ideas are born in a time of relaxation. Although, it may seem to you that the idea just came by itself without any real effort, you are wrong. Your brain is always doing something; even if you think like you are not thinking about anything, believe me, you are. The human brain is a mystery.

I often find myself getting the best ideas while showering. Maybe it sounds weird, but what can I say. I like long showers. I guess they help me relax and unleash all my creative juices. One thing that I have realized lately is that the first idea that comes to mind is the best one, I am not saying that all other ideas are bad, but the first thing that comes to my mind is something to hold on to. There is another way to come up with a solution of some a problem. For instance, talking to people of different backgrounds and jobs is helpful and can lead to a solution. Many people claim that the best ideas they ever had came to them while being under a deadline of some kind. Anything is possible. We all have different points of view; I guess we are all wired differently.

The water that runs down your body, the warmth, steam, acoustic room, a sensation of safety and relaxation are just some of the factors that explain why so many people sing under the shower. Why do people sing under the shower? It is difficult to name just one reason, but for me, there are two major reasons. I think that the bathroom is small enough and acoustically suitable room for such an activity. In fact, I have a shower head with a speaker in it so that I can sing along to my favorite tunes, listen to podcasts or even an audio book. The other reason is that I feel so relaxed, with the hot water, pleasant odors and the sensation of joy which makes me want to sing. While doing so, I come up with some of my best ideas.

I always think about the world and the things that surround me. Although, I would like to be more determined to take action more frequently than I do now. Mother Nature has given us as much as we need, but we are not satisfied with what we have. For instance, when the world would stop fighting, we would all realize just how lucky we are to have this beautiful planet to call home. There are so many extraordinary and beautiful living creatures on the world. It is enough just to lay back and be amazed at such beauty and diversity. How many wonderful color surround us each day, the flowers, the sky? All these thing I just named should be enough. Guess what? It all comes for free.

Well, these were some of the thoughts I had during a nice hot rainfall shower head on a beautiful rainy day. Yes, even though rainy day, still beautiful, peaceful and makes you think…
