Most people might ignore the aspects of creativity and what it can offer. A lot of people would rather go aimlessly through the day, and only use their mind enough just to do that. They do not understand how a creative mind can benefit them and enrich their lives. But applying creative thinking to your everyday life can make things so much more interesting. With creativity you free your mind up to think in new and exciting ways. There are many aspects of life in which you can find yourself benefiting from the use of a creative mindset. Here are just a few ways in which creative thinking can benefit you.

Creativity can help you find new ways to work, and find easier ways to do everyday chores. A creative and liberal mind will allow you to look at objects, motions and tasks in ways you may have never seen before. You can use creativity (and some ingenuity) to refurbish everyday objects to new uses (known as life hacks), and you can re-think everyday chores in new ways. Many people are already doing this, and you can find many examples online.

Creative thinking can also allow you to look at situations and topics in different ways. When you open your mind up to creative thinking you also open it up to new possibilities. Allowing yourself to have an open mind will give you the clarity to properly judge a situation. With creativity, you can also find ways to solve everyday problems in the fairest, and most efficient way. Creative thinking will also give you the ability to present, and interpret topics and information in fun, or interesting ways.

A creative mind is also a fun mind. With creativity and imagination you can make life fun. You can craft a game out of the most boring chores and tasks. Or you can think up of stories to entertain you as you drift off to sleep or when you find yourself with nothing to do. You can share those stories with friends, or even the internet. Maybe if you are lucky you can use creativity as a job. Such jobs include writing, drawing, painting, music, and so much more. Creative thinking can open all sorts of possibilities for fun, enriching, and fulfilling living. As you will find new ways to live, and new ways to smile.

Creativity will ultimately free your mind to fly wherever it pleases. It will open your eyes to new possibilities, and make you think of new ways to do everyday things. You can use creativity as a tool. A tool that can make work fun, life easier, save you from boredom, and even make you feel more fulfilled. Creativity will challenge your mind, enhance your brain, and give you the ability to think outside of the box.

Ultimately, while creativity will enhance your life; it is also important to life. Without creativity we as a race would not be where we are today. We would not have marvelous inventions like phones or the internet. We would lack the ability to build our civilizations up with magnificent buildings and sound structures. We would not have the marvelous stories of Shakespeare or The Odyssey. We would never see, or know art and music, and we would all just be mindless and numb beings who know nothing but survival. We would lack the capacity of living interesting and meaningful lives. Luckily that is not our current existence. Creativity is a part of our lives, and is one of the many things that make us human. So it is important that we all use our creative instincts to do good for ourselves, and give us the freedom to do awesome things.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
