We can often take creativity for granted. When we have a problem we tend to try and tackle it in a logical way – and this is a good thing! However, sometimes is may be very beneficial for us to add a little creativity to our problems. This might be why practices such as music therapy, art therapy, or even therapeutic coloring books are so popular. Adding a creative element to our therapy can help us work through emotions, or help inspire new solutions to the challenge(s) we may be facing. This article talks about some of the different creative activities that may help you deepen and enrich your therapy. One common example is writing. Writing can help us express and work through the emotions we may be feeling, or the challenges we may be facing. It may help us feel a bit better to get these thoughts off our chest, and may just putting into words how we are feeling might be helpful.
