People often think of creativity as a luxury or frivolous activity, and although they may be interested in exploring it they put it off until the kids are older or even until they are retired. However, I’m going to show you how the benefits of developing your creativity filter into all aspects of your life and you really can’t afford to keep putting it off:
The global economy is challenging for both businesses and individuals and those with developed creativity skills shine because they are able to think outside the box and figure out new ways to meet challenges as they arise.
The ability to look at things sideways and upside down is great for fixing things, problem solving, creating an interesting and nurturing space.
Expressing your creativity has the power to change a boring life into one filled with excitement. It connects you to your authentic self where you find meaning and fulfillment. When Ellen Langer, a Harvard psychologist took up painting she experienced a personal renaissance. Her research has shown many benefits–feeling more satisfied with your work, and increased competence, health, longevity, happiness, creativity, and charisma.
I have found that as I allow my creativity to flow, my relationships are more playful, vibrant, satisfying and less stereotypical.
When you allow yourself to think creatively, you question everyday assumptions and make choices that suit who you really are, rather than just doing what everybody around you does.
