Relax to Create!

December 18, 2015

Want be more creative? Relax! No, seriously relax. Stress activates the sympathetic branch of the nervous system that causes us to become left brain dominate. Our left brain hemisphere is connected to doing what we've always done, using previous knowledge, and linear/logical thought. It is not smart for survival to perform a cartwheel while running from a lion...when you are stressed your body-mind reacts in this fight or flight response and shuts down creative/novel ideas. When we relax through art, exercise, massage, meditation, music, tai chi, walking in nature, yoga and more we engage more of our right brain which is connected with holistic thinking, intuition, and new ideas.
