The human brain is designed to grow and change throughout a person’s life. Your creativity may get better with age and may ward off disease and cognitive decline. It’s like exercising your mental muscle. The more you exercise your brain, the more you build new connections and new neural networks. Creativity goes beyond visual arts, to include anything from gardening, to dancing, to going to the ballet, to creating a piece of art, to listening to music. These are all therapeutic tools.

The main thing that invites creativity into your life is taking risks. Develop a passion and fire that will run deep through your veins, your blood. Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you're passionate about something, then you're more willing to take risks. Even taking a risk is a creative act. You’re doing something. You’re imagining. You’re thinking about something. You’re thinking outside the experience you’re in and wondering what a new experience could be. And that is creativity.
Baby boomers are intelligent, creative, and social people. Within this group there are different tastes and cultural reference points, but they all benefit from tapping into their creative capacity and they have fun doing it.

Creating: Writing, drawing, painting, singing, playing music. Or, it might be inventing something, building a business, coming up with a clever marketing campaign, forming a non-profit.
Relating: It’s not “family” that makes life worth living, rather the relationships we create with members of our family, and the way we maintain and build those relationships. Same goes for friends, lovers, business partners, students, pets and everyone else.
Helping: Being able to lend a hand to people in need – however drastic or trivial that need may be – is an important part of life.
Realizing: Making it happen, working towards and achieving goals, no matter what those goals are.
Playing: Letting go of restraints, imagining new possibilities, testing yourself against others or against yourself, finding humor and joy.
Growing: Learning new things, improving knowledge and ability in the things already learned.
Most people experience increased peace and happiness as they get older. With the passage of time, they gain perspective. They bring more joy and happiness into their life. They let go of the complications, learn to set limits and care for their bodies. They realize life is too short to sweat the small stuff. The times that truly matter are the joyful moments we spend with those we love.
