CREATIVITY, NEVER TOO LATE TO LEARN

The things we fear most in organisations fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances are the primary sources of creativity.

If you've ever wanted to take singing, dancing, or knitting lessons, you've got a perfect reason to start: Creativity reduces stress and keeps you healthy.

Mankind's greatest accomplishment is not the revolution of technology it is the evolution of creativity.


Is there something you've always wanted to learn, like singing, dancing, or acting? Or perhaps you have a love for horses and want to take riding lessons? Don't brush it off as a silly extravagance or something you just don't have the time or money for giving into your creative desires is not only fun, it's also good for your emotional health.

Thoughts give birth to a creative force that is neither elemental nor sidereal. Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow. When a man undertakes to create something, he establishes a new heaven.

Creative Thinking: Why Creativity Is Important

Creativity is important for a number of reasons, including:

It's fun and enjoyable.
Doing things that you like reduces stress and improves overall well-being.
It boosts self-confidence. Trying new things can improve self-confidence and make you a more interesting person.

It stimulates the brain.
Creativity sharpens the brain, which can stem the advance of dementia in old age. The more new things you learn, the more use the brain gets and the sharper it will remain. It's often recommended that seniors learn new skills and challenge themselves with new opportunities, but this recommendation is appropriate for any age.

Creative Thinking: A Balanced Life

You already know that all work and no play do not make for a healthy life and can result in a pretty unhappy you. But that also doesn't mean that all play and no work is good either, and that's why striking the right balance is so important.

All in all, the creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act. This becomes even more obvious when posterity gives its final verdict and sometimes rehabilitates forgotten artists.

Working and being productive helps keep you sharp, organized, and even happy as long as it's well balanced with leisure and creativity. Whether it's at your daily job, taking care of your children, or cleaning up your home and yard, you feel a great sense of accomplishment after a productive day and that does a lot for your emotional health. But we all need time to rest and rejuvenate, and do something fun and stimulating. So block off some time each day or each week for a little creativity.

Our current obsession with creativity is the result of our continued striving for immortality in an era when most people no longer believe in an after-life.

During your "you" time, do anything that you enjoy or anything that's new and different to you. Make it something that's challenging, stimulating, and that you look forward to. Here are some good ways to challenge your brain, learn new skills, and get your creative juices flowing:

Write in a journal or do some creative writing

Tackle a crossword puzzle

Take a knitting, crochet, or cross-stitch class

Take up gardening

Visit the theater

Take a painting or sculpture class

Take a dance class

Learn yoga or tai chi

Listen to lectures

Take a cooking class

Learn to sing or play a musical instrument

Learn to speak a new language

Go back to school and take some academic or other classes of interest to you

Most importantly, whatever you decide to do, make it fun. Sure, it's one more thing to add to your busy schedule, but taking time for creativity is one of the best investments you can make for your body and spirit.

We live at a time when man believes himself fabulously capable of creation, but he does not know what to create.
