Friday, Sept. 14, is National Live Creative Day.

I’ve been reading a lot lately on how being creative helps us improve the overall quality of our day-to-day lives. It gets a different part of our brains working, allowing us to think about everything in a different way.

Sometimes, the daily grind can really take its toll. That’s why I think it’s important to take time to be creative. Give your brain the well-deserved break it’s been waiting for so you can return to your everyday tasks refreshed and ready to go.

This week, try something new. Grab a coloring book and just unwind with some coloring.

Take some time to read a new book, or sit down and write a little.

Sign up for a painting class with friends, or go for a hike in the woods.

Any way you can give yourself a break will help you lead a more creative, fulfilling life.

Now, before you get to work on your latest masterpiece, check out what’s going on in Hughestown.
