Have you ever had the problem where you have a deadline for a project and can't think of a satisfactory solution before the deadline, but then as soon as the deadline passes, a better solution springs to mind? This happens because your unconscious mind is an extremely important player when it comes to creativity. You must learn to start projects early and take breaks to give your unconscious mind time to ponder the problem. Pulling an "all-nighter" to finish up a project right before the deadline will never result in the best solution because your unconscious will never have a chance to process the problem.
It is also important to make sure that you allow your mind to relax during these breaks. If you are too stressed out, your mind will not be able to get into a state where your unconscious can freely think about the problem.
