Prompt: When and where do you do your best thinking? In the bathroom? While running? Just before bed, or first thing in the morning? On the bus? Why do you think that is?
Oof. This one is tough because there really isn’t a specific ‘when‘ so to speak. Instead, I do my best thinking whenever I’m doing something that…doesn’t require active concentration. In the shower? Yep. While meal prepping? Yep. Waiting for my partner to make decisions at the home improvement store? You got it.
Now that I’m thinking back on it though- when I was younger my best thinking always happened while doing puzzles. Unfortunately for me, I can’t hop back into puzzles just yet because: a) I used to do thousand piece ones, and b) I now have two cats keeping me in retirement.
My only theory on why my best thinking happens in these situations is because I’m running on autopilot…So I can let my mind wander without feeling unproductive?
I don’t know if it’s a solid theory, but it’s all I’ve got.
