Finding a creative outlet can ease the difficulty of daily living. Creativity can lift mood, aiding with depression and anxiety.

Creativity is a physical and psychological action. Cooking, gardening and knitting are wonderful ways to implement creativity in your regular life. Insights arise while your mind has freedom during creative periods.

If you work in an oppressive or mundane situation, it’s a challenge to feel creative. Work to make peace with the mundane and engage in your work in the present. Allow yourself times for meditation and mindfulness. Take advantage your work being the means to the creative end that you pursue outside of the workplace. Make a genuine human connection with someone at work to make the days easier to bear.
