Following the success of our blog why creativity is important for your team as part of Mental Health Awareness week we have explored the topic further by looking at how creativity can help mental health and well-being.
A study by Cleveland Clinic reveals that the average person has 60,000 thoughts per day and 95% of them are exactly the same, day in and day out. This research finds that in order to find calm, peace and happiness in one’s mind, the focus needs to be on one’s inner self. Immersing your team in a creative and engaging team building activity like Brick Films or Claymation, will naturally lessen the importance of those thoughts we experience everyday and help to clear the mind.
Neuroscientists have been studying many forms of creativity which have been proven to be beneficial to your health and alleviate depression. Although our events are suitable for all abilities, whether you are from a creative background or not, they develop innovation and engage curiosity as delegates learn how to animate their very own stop-motion films in teams. Our event packages are tailored to each client so we work with you beforehand to create a brief that can be themed to suit your company values or strategy. This allows you to keep it as open and creative as you like or focussed towards a particular idea.
Our Claymation and Brick film activities have become increasingly popular with clients looking to increase creativity in the workplace. The beauty of animation team building is that anyone can learn and everyone can get involved. Getting stuck in with plasticine and LEGO reminds us of our childhood and requires no particular skill which is why our activities are well known for being accessible to everyone as well as enjoyable. The creative processes involved like model-making, storyboarding and making their own animations will be contributing factors towards helping to improve depression and anxiety which are vital for mental health and wellness.
