It happens usually in the bed, when all the light is out. This would reduce all stimuli significantly, so you can analyze/use your imagination best. I take a look a some synonyms for "think" but don't know what to choose:

ponder, reflect, deliberate, meditate, contemplate, muse, cogitate, ruminate, be lost in thought, be in a brown study, brood, concentrate, rack one's brains, cudgel one's brains, put on one's thinking cap, sleep on it, cerebrate

My objective is to find an illustration that can describe that state of thinking.

Your paragraph is awkwardly phrased. I might say something like this: I do some of my best thinking in bed at night, when the lights are out and all is quiet.

Reflecting on the events of the day, I concluded that my boss and I have different priorities. Since I couldn't sleep, I contemplated my options for tomorrow.
