We are all creative! We just need to tap into our potential!
I found this article about the “7 Surprising Facts about Creativity According to Science” that somewhat blew my mind. Guess why? Because some of these we have been pounded by our teachers, parents and others that these are NOT things to focus on in our life. I will give you the list, and you can read the article to see what you think, and start daydreaming and dancing a little more. The 7 Surprising facts are:
- 72% OF PEOPLE HAVE CREATIVE INSIGHTS IN THE SHOWER
- THE INTROVERTS ARE ONTO SOMETHING: SOLITUDE IS WHERE CREATIVITY THRIVES
- TRYING NEW THINGS MAKES YOU MORE CREATIVE
- TRUST YOUR INTUITION
- TRAUMA HAS HIDDEN CREATIVE PROPERTIES
- DAYDREAMING IS SURPRISINGLY GOOD FOR YOUR BRAIN
- SOME OF THE BEST IDEAS ARE WIDELY RIDICULED BEFORE THEY’RE REVERED
Think about how our workday would go, if it were filled with just a little creativity? Or what you may be able to add to your workplace if you gave them some of your creative ideas? Maybe keep a journal beside you (or in the shower) that you can jot down some creative and imaginative ideas throughout the day, and act on one of those, or give to you Manager. This is a great exercise to do, and make the humdrum turn into creative moments. I love this quote: : “You can’t use up creativity, the more you use it the more you have.” Maya Angelou
Think of your creativity as an egg inside of you that needs to be hatched, and then put to work!
“Creativity is putting your imagination to work, and it’s produced the most extraordinary results in human culture.” – Ken Robinson.
Let us tap into our creativity and improve our lives, work, and others.
