For the Love of Creativity
We all love having a creative outlet. For some, creativity is something that happens outside the normal 8-to-5 schedule. For others, it permeates every aspect of their lives. However your find your inner “artist,” there are known benefits from expressing it including a boost in brain power from regular activity. Studies also show that creative individuals are more likely to be helpful, collaborative and perform better. No matter what your outlet, there’s benefit to drawing inspiration from being around other creative individuals.
