Creativity & Your Wellbeing
11 February 2018
You started the year with a whizz of excitement, but now it feels like walking through molasses just to get to work every day. Never fear: your creativity support unit is here!

Creativity and your wellbeing
It’s a well-touted adage that all work and no play is no way to live. But, under the stress of deadlines and to-do lists, it can start to feel a little difficult to unwind. Being able to think creatively, express yourself, and enjoy some downtime, are important parts of your health journey. For every member of your family, accessing their creative mind can help them to relax, and stimulate their minds in interesting ways. We found our top six apps to help everyone do just that:

Apps that spark your creativity

  • If you’re battling to think up the next big thing at work, Brainsparker can help. Using randomised creativity prompts, Brainsparker is an excellent tool for helping a tired mind think more clearly, and generate new ideas.

  • Mind-mapping is often used for studying purposes, but it’s an excellent tool for problem-solving too. MindNode works on your Mac and iPhone, helping you to visualise ideas and organise your thoughts.

  • Giving you a zoomable canvas and oodles of space, Syncspace lets you collaborate with others and sketch out that next big idea.

Apps for creative kids

  • Combining science education and a whole lot of fun, The Cat in the Hat Built That is an essential app for your child’s library. It’s equal parts education and creativity, with a bunch of fun to boot!

  • Faces iMake lets kids make funny faces out of everyday objects, with sometimes hilarious results. We recommend it for adults too, just for fun.

  • Mixing logic-based learning with creatively stimulating content, Beck and Bo is a must for your little one!
