Home / Marley / Who’s more creative after midnight
Posted by MARLEY
The title says it all. I am 100% more creative in the wee hours of the morning than I am at the normal hours that people are usually working. 8 am shifts could not be more difficult for me, and I find words flowing almost magically from my fingers through the keyboard as the clock ticks closer and closer to 2 am.
As a student with a full load and an unpredictable schedule, it’s almost kismet that my mind goes full blown poet during the witching hour when almost everyone is asleep. It’s a little humorous, a running joke within the office, that tasks get completed at 2:47 a.m. and documents were last edited at 4:15 a.m.
So I am here to ask: am I the only one? What is it about my brain that it only really comes to life when the sun goes down? Is my internal clock just that messed up from too many homework and test cram session all-nighters?
If you are a creative who also struggles with this issue, I am here to tell you that you are not alone. Curious as to what time I am writing this blog article? 1:37 a.m. which is actually relatively earlier than usual. For some strange reason, my circadian rhythm is backwards, and I was meant to be nocturnal.
Maybe it’s my caffeine dependency, my poor time management, or a combination of the two, but whatever the case, I am glad that at some point in time, my mind is creative enough to put together all of the words that lead to the overall works we are able to create for our clients. I could not ask for a more incredible job or team than this one.
