The Link Between Creativity and Wellness
People tend to consider creativity something that you either have or don’t. Statements like “Wow, you’re so lucky to be creative. I wish I was like that!” perpetuate the idea that being creative is something inborn, inherent, and immovable. But behavioral science on creativity, spearheaded by researchers like Robert Epstein, has actually proven otherwise. Creativity isn’t an innate quality that someone is born with or without, it’s a skill that people can develop with practice–and they enjoy plenty of health benefits for doing so.
