Creativity Psychology

The key to good ideas? Rest.

Want to be as creative as Lin Manuel Miranda? Considering giving your mind a rest. #creativity

A good idea doesn’t come when you’re doing a million things. The good idea comes in the moment of rest. It comes in the shower. It comes when you’re doodling or playing trains with your son. It’s when your mind is on the other side of things.

Lin Manuel Miranda

Never feel guilty about taking a break. Not only should you plan unscheduled time, you should also invest in a good night’s rest.

The dormant mind is an active one. More rest = bigger ideas.
