This can explain why even if I desperately would like to sleep, I can’t allow myself to switch off my brain and calmly lay down to bed.
When you lay down to go to sleep at night you are suddenly shutting out most of that incoming data, which means your brain finally has time to make sense of everything going on.
This explains why sleep is so valuable to creative thinkers: taking a break from everything else allows your brain to do what it does best: think.
It’s also important to note that because your brain is utterly creative before sleep that having a notebook nearby is a good idea.
