Why should you live a creative life? The benefits are immeasurable!
Just to name a few …
We become active instead of passive
Much of what we normally do in the 21st century is passive. We absorb, watch, scroll, and ingest, and then sort and file it all away in our brain. Exhausting. On the other hand, productive, pleasurable work can have the opposite effect, it energizes us and moves us to action!
We enjoy a feeling of accomplishment
When we create something, we gain a positive and healthy sense of self-esteem. We also become better at problem-solving. In school, standard tests of achievement were mostly analytical, but we need to acquire insightful thought processes for problem-solving in life. Working at something creative does that for us. We learn to harness intuitive processes and put them to use.
We understand ourselves better
By turning our attention to what lies within, we build a sense of meaning that allows us to tap into our deepest, innermost feelings and thoughts. Our very being compels us to create things. It is the means by which we make sense of the world. Each method or medium, each creative endeavor or personal expression brings clarity and sight.
So what are we waiting for? Let’s get started!!
