What if you could train yourself to think better, more focussed whilst you sleep?
Yes, you heard that correctly: think more focussed whilst you sleep.
See, ‘the sleeping brain’ does not exist. Research has proven that the brain does not ‘shut down’ – it only goes into different work modes. Yes, WORK modes.
One mode is to digest experiences and to store them, connected to feelings – which become our memories. But that does not take the entire night.
Another mode is dedicated to creative thinking and problem solving, aka. coming up with new ideas. And not only can we learn how to use and harvest this mode, but we can train it like a muscle. A muscles that loves to be used.
My guest, Nicoline Douwes Isema, will tell us all about how to wake up with better ideas. A technique she calls ‘dreamstorming’ and is particularly fruitful if you have been feeling stuck with a very concrete problem that you couldn’t solve with your conventional problem-solving skills.
