Weekends are for catching up on laundry, cleaning the floors, grocery shopping, running errands, cutting the grass, and washing the dishes. These projects keep me moving, my hands are busy, and oxygen floods through my bloodstream. Our brains depend on the stuff more than any other part of the body. Oxygenation blood fuels our neurons, and studies suggest that blasts of oxygen can help improve cognitive functions.
Besides, simple tasks occupy the critic that stifles our shy creative side. While it is busy it leaves us free to contemplate grand plans and conjure amazing stories. My notebooks bear grass stains, water droplets, and spaghetti sauce splatters that attest to the dire need to record and capture those ideas before they disappear into the ether. The by-product is a clean house.
Where do your best ideas originate?
Keep on writing.
