There is growing recognition in psychology research that creativity is associated with emotional functioning. – Dr. Tamlin Conner
Yes . . . we are more creative when we are in control of our emotions. Yes . . . we are more creative when we are optimistic and positive. Yes . . . we are more creative when we know we are supported and loved.
For us as adults, and for the children we serve on a daily basis, emotional wellbeing is the centerpiece for success. None of us can do this alone; we function in teams and families. We support each other. Our individual emotional functioning is dependent on having the right people around us; it’s dependent on our sense of belonging, self-worth, and self-efficacy.
Today, as you encounter challenges and embrace our passion for growth, be mindful of your emotions. Your emotions, your mindset, are the barometer of how you perform throughout the day.
