Unleash Your Creative Side


Welcome to day 9 of the Decompress – Where’s Your Happy Place? powered by Compass One

The past year of the pandemic has taken a toll on our mental health. Throughout times of stress, we need opportunities to unwind and express ourselves through creative outlets. In fact, research from Cleveland Clinic found that creativity helps those who’ve experienced trauma by reducing the shame, anger, or depression they feel. Yes, that includes the experiences of many of you who have been working on the frontlines of the pandemic.

Today is your opportunity. Mark on your calendar a block of time to do something creative. You could try:
  • Art therapy
  • Poetry or creative writing
  • Scrapbooking
  • Knitting or embroidery
  • Making flower arrangements
  • Singing or dancing
  • Playing a musical instrument
The best part about being creative is that there’s no wrong way to do it. Find an activity you enjoy and let the creativity flow — no judgement, no critiques, no scorecard. Use the time to get in the zone and unwind.

What creative activity did you do today? Share it with us. Post a photo or video et us know in the challenge update thread here, in our private Facebook group, or on Twitter, or Instagram and tag us with #healthynurse.

If you found this helpful, use the social media links on the left side of your page to share it with a nurse and invite them to join Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation!
