Do Tell: Where do you do your Best Thinking?

Do you have a specific place where you do your best thinking? I go to work everyday, but I always come up with great ideas to write about when I am in the shower -- weird, I know! For some reason, my mind is clear and things just come to me. Not sure why, but it is my secret place to brainstorm about everything from what I am going to wear to that cocktail party this weekend or what I should get my mom for her 60th birthday. So ladies, do tell, where do you do your best thinking?

I'll have to go with the shower and the in bed, something about being totally alone makes for amazing ideas.

In my bed. Switch off all the lights and just think.

I agree, it is in the bathroom for me. Typically in the shower

I do my best thinking travelling. Both the process of transporting myself from one place to another and a nice holiday destination activate my best thinking. Coz of the gentle rocking motion when moving, and nice relaxing scenery when i get to my holiday destination.

i do my best thinking in my car listening to music. especially in the morning when i'm too tired to actually sing along with my CD's and i just listen. :)

My best, most relaxing and innovative thinking comes whilst laying upside down on my couch... until my dog comes over and nibbles on my nose.

When I'm on a nice long run or walk, or right before I go to bed.

I thought I was the weird one because I definitely do my best thinking in the shower!!! When I was stressed about my work as an undergraduate, I used to figure it out in the shower and now as a grad student, I've come up with loads of solutions to my dissertation and exams in the shower!

In bed before I go to sleep, and when I have a nice long bath

If I need to figure something out, I just head out my door for a nice, long walk. I love tuning the world out and really focusing on the issue at hand. Sadly, I usually do this when I have a computer programming issue that needs resolving lol, but it's good for other thinking too.

I am with penguins, for me it is rightbefore i go to sleep, and somtimes while i am dreaming...i tend to dream about my problems and then one night i will dream a solution. also, daydreaming. It is when my mind is wandering on not one specific thing that suddenly the light bulb will click on. in the shower i am always thinking of how much i dont' want to go to work haha. lately (and i thin kthis is related to my leaving on vacay tomorrow) I will have a great thought while staring mindlessly into the computer screen, but once i snap out of it, i lose the thought until i try real hard to remember, which sometimes i don't...

I would have to say right before I fall asleep and in the car. Not necessarily when I'm driving either.

wow, i only read your headline and my first thought was the shower! my second favorite place to think is the toliet. ;) what is it about bathrooms that give you piece of mind? maybe cuz no one can disturb you in there (or you at least get a few minutes of private time!)

I'm with ya - the shower! I always seem to relax better in there and the best ideas come from the time I spend in the shower.
