Why is it that most of our best ideas come when we’re in the shower? It’s simple – there’s no phone, no music, no kids, no partner (except that one time in Paris)… and for pretty much the only time during a day your mind has literally nothing to do but THINK.
The thoughts we have in the shower are sometimes life-changing breakthroughs. How many billion-dollar business ideas came to people in the shower? How many simple solutions to intransigent problems? How many lyrics to hit songs? When the warm water flows down on us from our wonderful rain shower head, THAT’S when we do our best work.
And there’s the other side. Some shower thoughts are so trivial and pointless, yet so perceptive and wise, that they’ve spawned entire corners of the internet devoted to them. Here’s a short collection of our favorites:
The human brain is so complex we can not even replicate it in a lab, yet it can run purely on hot pockets and pop-tarts.
The modern equivalent of “A watched pot never boils” is “A watched file never downloads”.
Fish tanks are reverse submarines.
Humans are really bad at recharging; it takes about 8 hours charge for 16 hours of use.
A ton of people is literally 12-15 people.
When you say “forward” or “back”, your lips move in those directions.
Clapping is just hitting yourself because you like something.
When jogging, we put on special clothes so people don’t think we are running from or to something.
In order to fall asleep, you have to pretend to be asleep.
Have you had any deep and meaningful thoughts while enjoying a rain shower? Get in touch and let us know! We’d love to hear them. (The best ones will be added to this list, if you give permission.)
