Creativity and Healthy Aging

The Washington Post recently published an article about ongoing research into the role of creativity in both longevity and healthy aging, Creativity may be key to healthy aging. Here are ways to stay inspired. "Studies show that participating in activities such as singing, theater performance and visual artistry could support the well-being of older adults, and that creativity, which is related to the personality trait of openness, can lead to greater longevity." However, creativity isn't limited to the arts.  Not sure what it means?  The article offers some ideas, including travel,  daydreaming, being playful (and childlike, but not childish :-)), applying your knowledge,  meditating, meeting your challenges, playing brain games, and exercise.  So go out and have a little fun!
