Creativity Challenges

Being creative is more than a fun activity, it’s an active way to keep your body and brain healthy. In a paper published by the journal, The Arts in Psychotherapy, researchers found that doing basic artistic activity actually increased blood flow to the brain’s reward center. Other research has shown that when people are actively engaged in a craft or art-making, breathing becomes more regular, people’s heart rate and blood pressure decrease, and that the stress hormone, cortisol, is reduced. Challenge yourself to incorporate a creative activity into your Stuck at Home (together) routine. Although you can do this solo, we encourage you to try scheduling friends, family, or colleagues to participate with you via FaceTime, Zoom, Google Hangouts, or similar!
