The Benefits of Being Creative

Recently I keep seeing articles of the benefits of taking up a craft, so I decided to look into this a bit further.

It’s funny, when you generally think about the word “creative”, what comes to mind is Art & Crafts.

So it was interesting watching the video on the CNN link as it looks at  different types of ways you can be creative ie Building Gadgets. Opening creativity to everyone!

Being Creative


A shocking statistic that I found in the Daily Mail stated that being a creative person you are 75% less likely to suffer memory loss! They say it’s due to repetitive movements and that you are constantly stimulating the brain.



Dust off those brushes and paints, break out those needles and hooks or anything crafty and get creative. It’s not just amazing seeing your finished product but also now good for your well being.
