We’ve all experienced the “shower thought” phenomenon. You’re in the shower, mindlessly going through the motions while another part of your brain is on fire with ideas.
There’s actually a reason why these epiphanies happen. The shower represents a comfortable space where you can feel vulnerable. Additionally, the uninterrupted alone time allows the mind to wander freely, contributing to those thoughts you can only access in the shower.
These mind-blowing revelations have their own subreddit, r/Showerthoughts, where people post and discuss clever ideas. Over the past few months, the topic of marriage has popped up frequently on the subreddit.
Could it be that married couples have spent too much time together in quarantine? Who knows, but here are 20 shower-thoughts posts that will make you do an Owen Wilson ‘Wow.’
