One of the best ways to relax after a day of tiring work is to take a shower while drinking beer. It’s fun, comforting, and it gives you a nice buzz while you’re rubbing away all the worries of the world while in the shower.
This habit may be weird for some people. But did you know that it can help you become smarter. In fact, according to the study of the University of Illinois, people who drank a couple of pints were able to solve 40% more of the problems in their study than those who didn’t drink anything.
But a psychologist name Jennifer Wiley said that drinking beer won’t make people smarter in everything. In fact, they are worse in working with memory tasks, but they were better in problem-solving tasks.
She also said that innovation may happen when people are not so focused. Sometimes it’s good to be distracted. But where does the shower part comes in?
Well, creativity is related to an increased flow of dopamine, or the feel-good hormone.
The more dopamine is released, the better we feel and the more creative we get. That’s why taking a hot shower is a dopamine-releasing trigger.
Pair that with beer-fuel problem-solving abilities and you’ll feel ready to conquer the world.
Therefore, the next time you need some creative inspiration or a good idea, grab a beer and get into the shower quickly!
However, please make sure you aren’t overdoing it with the alcohol. Spree drinking is much different than having one can of beer.
