Refers to the state of one's overall satisfaction with their creative expression and engagement in artistic, cultural, or imaginative activities

Creative wellness involves nurturing and supporting one's creative impulses, exploring artistic endeavors, and finding joy, fulfillment, and a sense of purpose through creative outlets.

Engaging in creative activities can take many forms, such as painting, writing, dancing, playing music, crafting, cooking, gardening, or any other activity that allows a person to express themselves and tap into their imagination. Creative wellness has been associated with various positive effects, including stress reduction, enhanced self-esteem, increased problem-solving abilities, improved cognitive function, and a sense of personal growth and fulfillment.
Questions to ask yourself:
  1. Am I regularly engaging in creative activities that I enjoy?
  2. Am I exploring new artistic territories and challenging myself creatively?
  3. Do I feel inspired and motivated to explore new creative avenues, or do I feel stuck in a creative rut?
  4. Do I feel a sense of connection and community in my creative pursuits? Do I have opportunities to collaborate, share my work, and receive feedback from others?
