Give It A Rest, With Mind Games

Real Estate Broker/Owner

Give it a rest. With Mind Games.                                                                                                                                              Perhaps the most extreme example of the mental power of staying calm is the creative benefit of sleep. next time you're working on a complex problem, whether it be a calculus proof, or choosing the right car for your family, it really pays to "sleep on it." Researchers at Harvard Medical School have looked at the conditions under which people come up with creative solutions. In a study involving math problems, they found that a good night's rest doubled participant's chances of finding a creative solution to the problems the next day. The sleeping brain, they theorize, is vastly capable of synthesizing complex information.   Reader's Digest

So that's where the phrase "I need to sleep on it" originated.  Now I have a researched  excuse to take a nap at any given time of day when I am working.  I will just state...."I need to sleep on it".  Thanks!
