Practicing Creativity And Wellness
Creativity isn’t an innate quality that someone is born with or without, it’s a skill that people can develop with practice–and they enjoy plenty of health benefits for doing so.
You know want to know what’s the best part?
Everyone can increase their creativity, just as everyone can increase their musical or athletic ability, with appropriate training and focused practice. Creativity isn’t something you are, it’s a habit, and the biggest myth about creativity is that it isn’t important and that it can’t be learned.
In fact, it is one of the most important skills we can master and the benefits of fostering creativity and exercising those skills over time lead to a happier and healthier you.
Exercise your brain.
The brain is divided into two hemispheres—the left performs logic-based tasks like those concerning math and the sciences while the right is focused on creativity and the arts.
Learning to play a musical instrument, for example, increases the connection between the two sides of the brain. Inducing changes in cross-hemispheric connections, with significant differences in various regions of that join the two brain hemispheres of musicians, compared with non-musicians.
The path to creative thinking.
Creativity produces ways of thinking that are focused on what’s possible rather than what is. This means, that instead of problems we see potential, instead of obstacles we see opportunities, and instead of challenges we see a chance to create solutions..
Through creativity we can create a new future, new moments and if you add optimism to it, you are leading the way to enjoying a better mental and physical well being. Why? Because you are promoting a healthy lifestyle through more efficiently managing negative information and promoting the capacity to solve problems.
Daily creativity in your life.
Learn new ideas by setting aside time, this will develop the habit of explaining things that you learn back to yourself to build up an arsenal of material you can use to think more creatively on a daily basis.
Get out of the box to consider or even experience new experiences, instead of rejecting them because the are completely new. LISTEN carefully to it, and take your time to engage with it after a day, two or whenever you feel ready to try it.
Never settle, keep searching for new ways to find a solution or create your own. Ask yourself, where can you find more information that might help you solve the current problem.
