Make Any Day More Vi­brant Why putting on your cre­ative-think­ing cap is good for you

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - CONTENTS -

Some daily tasks leave you grumpy for hours (yes, you, morn­ing com­mute), but ac­cord­ing to a re­cent study pub­lished in The Jour­nal Of Pos­i­tive Psy­chol­ogy, be­ing cre­ative is a to-do that could bring you joy for even longer. ‘Cre­ative acts, like draw­ing or com­ing up with a novel so­lu­tion to a work prob­lem, boost your sense of well­be­ing that day and the next,’ ex­plains study coau­thor Dr Tam­lin Con­ner. ‘Plus, feel­ing good in­spires you to be cre­ative, which sparks a pos­i­tive cy­cle.’ And you thought only Friends re­runs had this kind of magic.
