Why Being Creative Is Good For Your Emotional Health
To feel understood is one of the greatest human needs. When we are creative we express our inner-self in a way that language often cannot. The resultant joy that flows from our artistic self-expression is not only therapeutic but fulfilling too.
When we use creativity to express ourselves it is fun and freeing – we feel liberated, as if we have just found our vocal cords for the first time.
Of course, being creative offers many other emotional and psychological benefits too, it is relaxing, playful and rejuvenating for the spirit. There is a unique source of joy, happiness and fulfillment which comes from being creative, with few other activities able to replicate the feelings creativity inspires.
