Benefits Of Creative Expression

Posted: February 24, 2019 by Starr LaMonde, CTRS

Creative expression and creative play are staples in human development. This allows us to learn and grow physically, spiritually and emotionally.
Creative expression allows for freedom and innovative thoughts.

Focusing on creativity allows for relief of stress and anxiety. It can create a meditative state described as “flow”. This is when our mind is in an optimal state of consciousness. When we feel and perform at our best. Our brainwaves reach an alpha state where our thoughts slow and allows us to create without judgement.

Creative expression works as a catalyst in our emotional healing journey.
Writing about our emotional state allows us to dig into our own self awareness. It also allows us to manage and therefore cope with our emotions.
