What Does It Mean To Be A Creative? A How To Guide To Be A Creative!

What does it mean to be creative?

Creativity is a concept that has been defined and redefined by various individuals and disciplines throughout history. At its core, creativity involves the generation of novel and valuable ideas or products, but there is much more to it than that. In this report, we will explore what it means to be creative, the various theories and models of creativity, and how creativity can be fostered and nurtured in individuals and organizations.

What is Creativity?

At its simplest, creativity is the ability to produce something new and valuable. It involves coming up with new ideas, approaches, or solutions to problems. However, creativity is not just about novelty; the ideas or products generated must also be valuable or useful in some way.

Creativity can take many forms, from art and music to science and technology. It can involve the creation of physical products, such as paintings or sculptures, or it can involve the generation of new ideas or concepts, such as scientific theories or philosophical arguments.

Creativity is often associated with certain personality traits, such as openness to experience, curiosity, and divergent thinking. However, these traits are not sufficient to guarantee creativity, and there are many factors that can influence an individual’s ability to be creative.

Wednesday got of to an icy, snowy start which made the perfect conditions for our mental health portion of the week. This week’s topic was about Anxiety.

Being a Psychologist in training, specialising in the areas of human behavior and anxiety, John was the perfect person to write about this topic.


Anxiety is a common mental health condition that affects millions of people around the world. It can be defined as a feeling of fear, worry, or apprehension about future events or uncertain situations. Anxiety can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, environmental stressors, and traumatic experiences. In this essay, we will explore what anxiety is, how it forms, its effects on individuals, and how a person can overcome it.

Anxiety: What is it?

Anxiety is a normal response to stress, and it is something that everyone experiences at some point in their lives. However, when anxiety becomes persistent and interferes with daily life, it can be classified as a mental health disorder. Anxiety disorders are characterized by excessive worry, fear, or panic in response to situations that most people would find manageable.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) identifies several different types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and specific phobias. Each type of anxiety disorder has its own set of symptoms and diagnostic criteria, but all of them share the common feature of persistent and excessive fear or worry.

So as you can see, it has been a busy week, but that is not all.

Life In Scotland: Behind the scenes.

Both John and I have been hard at work. Me teaching piano and keeping up with our home, and John with his university studied (which have been particularly challenging this week), filming new reels, landing pages, clients paintings and so much more. We have been busy for sure. We did manage to get out for just one walk this week, which was lovely. Cold, but nice!

Something we have learned this week…

No matter how hard or bad something appears, remember that we assign its meaning. If life is going the way we want it, we deem it to be going well. If it isn’t going the way we want, we deem it to be going badly. Remember we assign the meanings.

Something we have enjoyed…

A new drink which we have re-introduced… Lime and soda.

Until next week friends, have a blessed weekend and stay safe, and we hope you enjoyed Life In Scotland
