Creativity and the Mind

Thursday, 25 October 2012 03:01 

We know that when we are happy, we feel better about all the little problems in our lives that we have to tackle. Conversely, when we are depressed, our problems appear enlarged and insurmountable.

Of greater significance even than this, a scientific study has revealed that positive mood increases creativity and the ability to solve problems. Not only does being happy make our problems feel smaller, it actually improves our ability to deal with them through creative problem solving.

This works because when we are happy, our brain patterns shift and have enhanced sensitivity to non-predominant solution options. Anxiety, meanwhile, has been associated with decreased problem solving ability as it creates tunnel vision.

Brookhaven’s full spectrum of healing therapies inspires mindfulness practice and the finding of joy in everyday life. Maintaining a positive mood allows women greater levels of insight and creative thinking about individual issues and how to apply therapy tools to promote healing.
