Thoughts on daydreaming…

The-Scientifically-Proven-Benefits-of-DaydreamingThis is an interesting discussion on daydreaming’s benefits to problem-solving.  I will say that most of my best writing has happened while lost in a random thought.

“During relaxed attention, a problem or challenge is taking up space in your brain, but it isn’t on the front burner. Relaxed attention lies somewhere between meditation, where you completely clear your mind, and the laser-like focus you apply when tackling a tough math problem. Our brains can make cognitive leaps when we’re not completely obsessed with a challenge, which is why good ideas sometimes come to us when we’re in the shower or talking a walk or on a long drive.”
