Laugh Your Way to More Creativity

Have you had your chuckles lately? Finding humor in things is good for your brain. I just read an article in Reader’s Digest about the benefits of humor on increasing creativity. I had never heard this about the benefits of humor before. Reader’s Digest has the article posted on its website in six parts. Here’s a link to the sixth part that focuses on increasing creatively. Once at the site for the article, click on the other five parts in the ‘In This Store’ section to the right.

Increasing our creative juices is something I believe a lot of us struggle with in regard to our fabric crafting. From a creative standpoint, I struggle the most with finding alternate sewing and construction methods for my designs. I’m convinced that easier methods must be possible for many of the traditional sewing/quilting techniques we were raised with or learned along the way.  I never would have imagined that finding humor in things would increase my creativity, but I plan to exercise this option a lot more in the future.

I start my day by reading the comic strip ‘Non Sequitur’ because I enjoy its wry humor.  Now I know that I should read it for the good of my business.  🙂  Oh, please give me more job responsibilities like this one.
