There has been a lot of research on creativity and how adding it to your life can help you lower stress, help with depression, create social networks that alleviates loneliness, helps to work through emotions, to feel happier and more centered, it has also been proven to be a great way to work through traumas that you have experienced in your life.
Creativity has also been shown to help with physical symptoms like decreasing pain, clearing brain fog and increasing memorization, decreasing anxiety, lowering blood pressure, and even boosting your immune system.
Whether you need to relax, or to calm your anxiety, or maybe you have an illness and need a boost to see you through, I personally have suffered from severe depression and creativity has been a salvation through that.
We often think about creativity as making something "Artistic", but in fact the root meaning of the word means 'to grow'. Creativity's by-products are some of the major achievements of civilization - from the invention of the wheel to our amazing technology we use today.
We are all creative individuals, but sometimes we don't feel like we are. If we can build our creative muscles it can help in so may areas of our lives. Creativity helps with our mental health, our careers, it makes life more interesting and fulfilling.
Many people don't identify as creative and believe they won't be able to make art. The special surprise is that everyone is creative. No artistic talent is needed to participate in creative healing or to do creative activities on your own.
What if you could, draw, write, create, meditate, and work through your spiritual being to heal yourself; Physical, Mental and Emotional healing.
