Creativity thrives in the dark

If you are a morning person you will be used to getting up very early to write, think or create. You will already know that dawn is the optimum time for creativity, closely followed by late evening for us night-owls. When you get up before dawn there is the wonderful feeling in the air. It might be the one time during the day when everything is calm and quiet. It’s a good time for reflection.

 

A recent study has shown that there is a direct correlation between the amount of light available and the type of thinking that we do. Dim lighting promotes creative work and bright light promotes analytical thinking.

 

This means that you should be doing your creative work early in the morning or late at night, and you should be doing the hard thinking (the actual work) during the day.
