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?
I am at my best in the morning after a good sleep…
So am not sure why I am writing this post shortly after midnight!
When I was an ‘A’ level and a medical student I would find that the best time for thinking was between 6 and 7 in the morning, before anybody in the house was up. I would sit at my table in the bedroom I shared with my sisters or creep downstairs and sit at the dining room table. I enjoyed the quiet. I think I did my best work during that hour. This of course was much easier in the summer time and when the dreaded exam season came around.
Even though I find it much harder to wake up at this time – when I do – I find it easier to think about life, the universe and everything. My thinking seems to occur when I am showering,
washing my face
and brushing my teeth!
I presume because I do all of these things on automatic pilot, I find it easier to think about other things.
I also suppose that it is because I have had a sleep – however short or long – my brain feels like it has had a reboot!
