Peace Through Creativity
Posted on 27 June 2014
Hello Tangle Fans!
I have some interesting information to share with you this month! Some might not know this but as you manipulate the Tangle you are using both hemispheres of the brain - stimulating a release of serotonin and endorphins. With the release of these brain hormones you become more calm, focused, and have a better sense of well-being.
In this less stressed out state, one can think more clearly and creatively about all kinds of things. I must also mention that creativity is not limited to drawing or painting but also to how we creatively think about a given situation. For instance, if you find yourself feeling glum, take out your Tangle, twist and turn it around and think about your issue (or don't think about it), and with time and some effort, you may find the solution to your problem or at least come to a conclusion about your situation! Or Tangles can literally inspire you to be creative! For example, you can use your Tangle as a figure for drawing, or the colors might inspire you to paint your nails the same colors (Instagram shout out!) which can be calming and relaxing. Or its fluid motion might help you focus enough to create an invention that will be the panacea for the worlds problems... who knows!?!
This is just something to think about the next time you twist and turn your Tangle. You might just come up with the next big idea for peace on Earth! We certainly hope you do!
