A whole new world of magic animals, brave young princes and evil witches has come to light with the discovery of 500 new fairytales, which were locked away in an archive in Regensburg, Germany for over 150 years. The tales are part of a collection of myths, legends and fairytales, gathered by the local historian Franz Xaver von Schönwerth (1810–1886) in the Bavarian region of Oberpfalz at about the same time as the Grimm brothers were collecting the fairytales that have since charmed adults and children around the world. Last year, the Oberpfalz cultural curator Erika Eichenseer published a selection of fairytales from Von Schönwerth's collection, calling the book Prinz Roßzwifl.

Recent studies show, for instance, that we are at our most creative when we're sleepy and not as focused—like when we first wake up, or before we fall asleep—so we should take advantage of that time.The stress of a commute and the sadness of reading the news also inhibit our problem-solving capabilities. All this means that we must rethink our morning routine, writes Annie Murphy Paul in Time. What you should do is wake up a few minutes early, take advantage of those groggy moments to write down any thoughts that occur to you, then take a longer shower while continuing to let your thoughts wander.
