Have a Pint to Think Outside the Box

in Anything Else

According to some study done by practitioners of the soft science at the University of Illinois, downing a couple of pints can help stimulate creative thinking.  You can’t get carried away though; the benefits wear off if you’re too sloshed:

Author Jennifer Wiley told the Daily Mail: “We tested what happens when people are slightly merry, not when people drink to extreme.

I suppose there comes a point when thoughts are so creative that they’re just stupid.  That said, the findings don’t surprise me.  Drinking can provide a well-needed break when you’re too focused and the lowered inhibitions can cause the mind to wander, which can help people stumble upon ideas that are “outside the box.”

Not being a beer drinker…

I do like a glass of red 2-3 times a week, and find it works wonders in many ways. And it’s good for my heart!
