The cognitive neuroscientists who discovered how the brain has aha moments sudden creative insights explain how they happen when we need them and how we can have of them to enrich our lives and empower personal and professional success  Eureka or aha moments are sudden realizations that expand our understanding of the world and ourselves conferring both personal growth and practical advantage Such. I have had a long interest in creativity since writing about it for my masters thesis This book took a long time to provide two ending chapters that offer some guidance in ways we can enhance our creativity The authors seem like analytical types writing about the opposite intuition or creativity through intuition Basically they contend that some problems may be solved by taking a look at the pieces of the problem rather than through the aha moment but thinking about and interacting with unusual people in a setting that is remote from your home base such as on vacation or in a place that has rounded corners and soft lights or is out in nature may lead to greater creativity especially if your soul is filled with love and not lust You are likely to have creative insights and valid intuitions when your brain is in a general state characterized by remote associations broad flexible attention abstract thought positive mood a sense of psychological distance and a promotion orientation Basically they suggest creativity is enhanced during your non peak time In other words if you are a morning person your best creative time is in the afternoon or early evening and vice versa for those night owls While your mental states can change It takes a while to sink into an insightful mind set This means that switching back and forth between insightful and analytic thought can waste time and prevent you from full engaging either state They then remind us to switch off our cell phones and practice mindfulness or meditation to allow us the freedom to explore
