A Do-It-Yourself Prescription for Happiness

In their insightful book, wife-and-husband physicians Carrie and Alton Barron present an innovative, highly achievable five-part plan to unleash happiness and alleviate depression and anxiety by tapping into creative potential.

A gifted psychiatrist and a premier hand surgeon, Carrie and Alton Barron draw upon the latest psychological research, a combined forty years of medical practice, and personal experience to demonstrate how creative action is integral to long-term happiness and well-being. The Five-Part Prescription for the Creativity Cure--Insight, Movement, Mind Rest, Your Own Two Hands, and Mind Shift--leads the way to a more meaningful, fulfilling life by simultaneously developing self-understanding and self-expression. With the Barrons' detailed tools and strategies for cultivating creative outlets, overcoming unconscious fears and barriers to happiness, and linking internal thought to external action, readers will build the mind-set and habits necessary for happiness and positive change. They will experience--and learn how to sustain--the deep satisfaction that accompanies creating something by hand.

The perfect self-help book for our handmade, homemade, crafting culture, The Creativity Cure has a simple yet profoundly inspirational message: that you can find the authentic, contented life you crave by taking happiness into your own two hands.

If you feel like you've lost your creative touch or you want to be more creative this is a great book to pick up. The authors provide a 5-step process that exercises you mentally, emotionally, and physically, and if you practice daily you create habits that keeps you in a more creative state of mind. My only negative about the book is that it does get repetitive as you read the chapters. Otherwise, a good start to changing behaviour to be more creative.
