More sleep = better creatives.

18May10

Creatives certainly aren’t known for sleeping. If anything, we’re up all night coming up with ideas or working on a project. But recent science actually suggests that the more you sleep, the more your brain primes your creativity pump.

Read this quick post by Dr. Joanne Cantor on sleep and creativity. She has a follow-up post here. I found both to be absolutely fascinating and the second post has got me thinking about sleeping with a notepad by my bed. It sounds so clichĂ©, but apparently during shuteye is when your brain is at it’s creative best.

The best part is that now, on the weekends when I want to sleep in, I can just tell my wife that I’m working.
