Editor's Note: Quality curation requires a shockingly large amount of creativity. You have to read, interpret, and then add to the insights already within what is most likely a killer piece of content. So, this piece should help you identify when and how is best to do any creative work.

1. Your brain does creative work better when you’re tired.


When I explored the science of our body clocks and how they affect our daily routines, I was interested to find that a lot of the way I’d planned my days wasn’t really the best way to go about it. The way we work, in particular, actually has a lot to do with the cycles of our body clocks.
