Do your days seem monotonous? How about your job? Maybe it's time to add more color and balance to your days, to your job, and even to your life by doing something creative each day!
Sharing with you an excerpt of an article I wrote for Lifehack:
"Even though the left-brain, right-brain dominance theory has been debunked, the world still enthrones activities attributed to the left-brain, such as logic and measurement, while “right-brain” activities like creative pursuits get short-changed. Most jobs today require analytical thinking more than creative thinking. Many people also deem creative pursuits impractical and give up on them.
No matter what your job is, you should keep going after creative pursuits. If you’re employed or if you have a business, create a plan to get more customers, to get more things done, to introduce more products, and to grow the business. Notice how your blood will get pumping and your adrenaline rushing. Only “right-brain” activities or creative pursuits have that effect in our lives. More importantly, it is only through creative pursuits that you stretch your vision and redefine what’s possible for your business and for life.
If you’re more of an artist, engage in creative activities that excite you like drawing, painting, playing music, writing music, animating, writing a story, or even starting a blog! It helps achieve balance in and add color to your life after a long, monotonous, “left-brain” dominant day.
Don’t just control, using your analytical “left-brain.” Create using your “right-brain” as well."
