The Top 7 Reasons to Make Living Creatively a Priority

1) Taking time for creativity is one of the best investments you can make in yourself. Regularly pushing yourself outside your comfort zone stimulates your brain to develop new ways of thinking and brings joy and imagination into all areas of
your life.

 

2) According to Newsweek Magazine, an IBM poll of 1,500 CEOs identified creativity as the No. 1 leadership competency of the future.

3) In her book "Drawing with Children, Laurie Meyers concluded, "Students do better in math and reading when given the opportunity to learn how to draw."
 

4) In this time of rapid change, studies show that creative people adapt more easily and are more able to stay in the flow of life despite uncertainty.

 

5) In an opinion poll by Strategy One, a global research firm, 82% of Americans feel they are not living up to their creative potential.

 

6) That same study showed that 62% of Americans believe that creativity is being stifled by our educational system, and there is
no concerted effort to nurture the creativity of all students.

 

7) Engaging in creativity can combat depression and the mental aging process. It can increase your powers of observation, spontaneity, and give you a bigger perspective of your day to day life.
