Creativity is one of the most important characteristics of being human. It is one of the main traits that make us successful as individuals and as a species. Creativity is important because it helps us be successful in many different settings. Participating in creative activities allows us to use different parts of our brain and allows us to view things from a different perspective. Additionally, creativity reduces stress and anxiety, as well as promoting problem solving and “thinking outside the box.”
This month, try out one of our programs that will encourage and bring out the creativity in you!
“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.” - Steve Jobs
