Why Do We Ponder Life in the Shower?

The shower is a strange place. It is a place where most people stand naked and ponder life.

But why? Why is it that we¬†always¬†stop and think about life’s deepest problems when we’re in the shower?

We’ve come up with a few reasons why we think about life’s unanswerable questions in the shower:

It’s Peaceful
When you’re in the shower, you can relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of your routine. When you’re relaxed and stress-free, your mind can drift and wander onto random subjects.

It’s Private
When you’re all alone and have no interruptions, you can have a good old daydream.

It’s Boring
When you don’t have to concentrate on something stimulating, you free up your subconscious.

It Messes with your Biology
Studies have proven that when you are in the shower, your brain releases dopamine and more alpha waves also flow through the brain, both of which increase creativity.

It’s Wet
Water is associated with contemplation – think waterfalls and rivers. We associate these places with thinking deeply.

It Wakes You Up
Showering signals the start of a new day and wakes you up – this helps you to be more alert and think up those wacky ideas.

So that’s why we think up the craziest ideas when we’re in the shower!

Look out for our daily #showerthoughts that we’ll be posting this week on Facebook and Twitter!
