Creativity & Intuition Lead to Individual & organizational Health
Happy, healthy people are the most productive people. Many statistics support this. Creativity and intuition lead to individual and organizational health; joy; enthusiasm; stress-reduction; play and profits. Creative work and expression enhances a person’s over-all functioning, self-esteem, sense of trust in their own abilities. Creative expressions also are the natural activities of the human being who is able to release, at least temporarily, the inhibitions of habituation and culture. Addictions are many and varied.
