XIX - The Artist (Creativity)

Creativity is using your imagination to come up with original ideas that can be applied to artistic work, and the more you practice it the stronger it gets. Having a creative outlet outside of life obligations helps to balance mood, reduce anxiety/stress, and even lower blood pressure. Creative endeavours allow you to express yourself and can look like decorating your house, designing your own clothes, painting or collaging visual art to represent your inner feelings, poetry, songwriting etc. Ensure you have enough leisure time in your schedule to do something you enjoy even if you don’t feel creative. Creative thinking involves three elements: absorption, reflection, and inspiration.Visit a gallery to get your creative juices flowing, and/or speak to a friend about the meanings behind art you love. What inspires you? What can you do to nurture your creativity?
