Today’s Wednesday Wisdom takes the present moment awareness that we have been focussed on for the last couple of Wednesdays, and combines it with something new: creativity.
Honing creativity has been linked to an increase in positive emotions, and been known to help you flourish. Research suggests that it can also lower stress levels and help you become more present and focussed.
Creative Mindfulness is also a great way to practice mindfulness for those who might find traditional modes of meditation difficult. So today, let’s look at ways that creativity can bring us into the present moment.
“Creativity is a great motivator because it makes people interested in what they are doing. Creativity gives hope that there can be a worthwhile idea. Creativity gives the possibility of some sort of achievement to everyone. Creativity makes life more fun and more interesting.”
– Edward de Bono
