31 Days of Wellbeing: Day 28

Day 28 of 31 Days of Wellbeing

I hope you ended up trying something new over the past few days. If not, plenty of time this week to catch up! In fact, you could actually combine the previous activity with today’s challenge…

Creativity is putting your imagination to work, and it's produced the most extraordinary results in human culture. Ken RobinsonRead more at_ https_www.brainyquote.comquoteske

I actually find this one quite challenging, as I am not naturally the type of person who gets creative in their spare time. I don’t draw, make music, write novels or make clothes! However I do believe that creativity can have a positive impact on your wellbeing. Creating this website made me feel good about myself again. It increased my self-esteem and gave me something to focus on, which I could feel proud of. It also distracted me from negative thoughts and bad habits.

If you don’t fancy any of the traditional creative outlets (writing, drawing etc.), another good one is to create a scrapbook of photos and memories e.g. from a holiday, or nowadays it’s not too far-fetched to make a movie using your phone and basic editing software. How about creating a quote picture to live by as well? Of course, you could also focus your creative skills on a gift for somebody else, e.g. a handmade card or photo collage.

Whatever you end up doing, don’t be critical about the end result and just applaud yourself for letting go of Netflix for an hour or two 🙂
