Creativity and Health

Many of you have heard that creativity Is good for the mind and soul. Well we need things that will improve our mental health, state of mind, and soul during this crisis. I’ve been fighting pneumonia so when I have the energy, creating encourages me and boosts my spirit.

I have been pondering a lot about the creativity that I see as we navigate through these uncharted waters and times. I’ve seen people get creative in showing kindness, making or securing supplies they need, sharing with one another, being safe but showing you care, protecting themselves, and more. I think a lot of businesses and great ideas will be born as we enter a new normal and move forward with life and this virus.

I enjoyed completing the below journal page which talks about moving forward. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink, watercolors, stencils and a handdrawn and carved stamp.

I want to encourage you to do something you love and to get creative whether it’s building something, gardening, cooking or whatever suits your fancy. It’s a good practice.

Warmest creative wishes,
