Creativity is a skill worth developing over a lifetime. Creative thinkers in the classroom and the workplace find news ways of looking at things. Rather than staying stuck in old patterns or habits of thinking, creativity allows people to expand their minds. Doing something creative can help spark innovation, boost engagement and even help people live longer. A study in the Journal of Aging and Health found that the openness involved in being creative is associated with a longer life.
