In a busy and STEM-oriented society like Singapore, it can be difficult to find time to do creative things…
So take this week’s challenge as an excuse to unleash your creativity!
Did you know being creative or engaging in creative activities can boost your mental health? It can:
Increase positive emotions
Lessen depressive symptoms
Improve immune system functioning
We reach this state thanks to getting into a state of “flow” which slows our brainwaves and also release satisfaction-inducing chemicals. FInd out more here: https://mindline.sg/youth/article?type=resource&group=School%20%26%20Work&sub-group=Fulfilling%20Student%20Life&resource-id=417
So try to be creative this week in your own ways:
- If you’re someone who draws, try a different medium!
- If you play instruments, try a new song!
- If you like cooking, try a new recipe!
The possibilities are endless, and remember, you define your own “creativity”, it can even be finding a new route back home. Goodluck!
Share in the comments what you’ve tried/what you’d like to try and spread that creativity.
