Is there something that you love to do that helps you to express yourself? Whether it’s playing music, doing a craft, or writing a blog (lol), it’s important to get your creative juices flowing. Being a little more creative can increase your critical thinking in other areas. Music helps to bridge both sides of your brain and studies show that studying music increases critical thinking skills. Writing also increases critical thinking skills, which is necessary to be a great nurse. I love playing music and writing, but also baking or doing a craft. Whatever you do everyday, get creative!
