Get Happy by Engaging in Creative Play
When was the last time you connected with your creative spirit?
In a world filled with countless messages that faster is better, sometimes we need a reminder to slow down. To be gentle & patient with ourselves.
Creativity can teach us this life lesson,...if we let it.
But too often we find ourselves running around all day trying to get things done. Rushing to work, rushing to meet deadlines, & rushing home to beat the traffic. Then the weekend comes, & we spend it seeking out the fastest gadgets because we are told they will make our lives easier. Yet we find ourselves rushing & unable to relax even more with each & every distraction they create in our lives. All of this go, go, go takes a serious tole on our bodies over time. It's so important for us to slow down. Our body, mind, & spirit deserve it. They are crying out for it.
Creativity can help.
Think you don't have the time? Well the more you think you don't have time to take time out for yourself,... to sit down & relax and do something that takes care of your body, mind, & spirit,....the more you need to do just that.
So turn off all distractions, grab your colored pencils, light some incense, & get in the creative zone.
The creative zone. It's that magical place where time seems to stop as you & your creative spirit indulge together in the healing power of playing with beautiful colors that fill your heart with joy!
Does your creative spirit want a blue flower with pink leaves? Or a pink & orange sky filled with stars? Beautiful! Trust your creative spirit. Let it have its way & it will show you the most beautiful things you've never seen before, or even imagined in your wildest dreams.
When the time comes & you're ready to enter back into the world you once came from, you will view it in a new light. Emerging from the creative zone you will find yourself feeling refreshed and renewed, with a greater sense of calm, clarity, peace, & happiness. And isn't that a much better way to go about your day?
Make a promise to yourself to take time out for creative play. You do deserve it. And your body, mind & spirit will thank you.
