Ever find that you’re unable to understand a concept no matter how many times and who explains it to you? That’s because of our implicit bias, generally speaking. Due to our inherent narrow-mindedness, our brain associates it to something else and clouds our objective judgment and thinking.
Hence we need to be more open-minded and curious, to see things as it is. When our brains shunt aside familiar association links, that we may get this “aha!” moment.
Doing something relaxing can also invoke our “diffused mode”, meaning that our brains have more “space” (so-called) to make new and different connections we are not even aware of. To learn more, see Learning How to Learn! or just google it haha.
