A creative mind is a happy mind
After watching The Creative Brain, a documentary now on Netflix, it’s confirmed, we are all creative! At the studio we say, “creativity is a thinking muscle in your brain” and like any muscle, it needs exercise! As film maker and neuroscientist David Eagleman states “creativity is what brains do”. It’s really what shapes our whole world and when exercised not only fulfills us but can heal us and help us meet the demands of our changing world. The creative brain is a must see, kids can watch it too.
