Wellbeing Wednesday - Creativity
This week our theme is creativity, and it is so fitting because there are so many 'national days' this week that it calls for us to be creative to link them together.
The 24th of June is National Writing Day, and your literary tasks allow for you to explore your written creative side. The 29th of June is Children’s Art Week, and we have combined what would have been the annual celebration of London Pride on the 27th of June with activities that encourage artistic expression. This will allow for our HAB community to demonstrate our allyship with the LGBT+ community in a creative way; so make sure that you engage with our HAB challenge this week.
Don't forget to look at the fabulous latest issue of our HAB@Home newsletter too!

In the past, we have used our HAB Sports Day as a platform to demonstrate our pride and to recognise diversity in our identities’. This year, we will keep that same enthusiasm in support of Pride, and take part in alternative creative activities, that show our allyship for members of our community who are LGBT+
Our core HAB values of respect and compassion drive us to stand in unity, ensuring that everyone within our community feels supported and that no one is marginalised because of their sexuality or sexual orientation.
Being creative implies that you approach tasks in a different way; it means that you change your perspective; it means that you take risks, ignore doubt and face fears; it means that you might have to stand out from the crowd and dare to be different, turning new and imaginative ideas into a reality.
If you are creative, it means that you have the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns and to make connections.
Creativity is not just about being good at art, where ever your passion and talents lie, you are have the ability to be creative in that area.
Creativity involves two process’; thinking, then producing. So, for those of you who claim that you are not creative, that simply is not true.
If you have the ability to think and access your imagination, and then bring your thoughts into reality, then you are creative. Click here to download the 'creativity' resource pack.
