One of the things missing in people's lives is meaning. Without it, life is pleasant or unpleasant, easy or difficult, but lacks that extra something that gives us purpose or drive.
That is the premise of this blog entry from Ben Michaels who writes for Psychology Today, and it's one I agree with. In six short paragraphs, he makes a case for making creativity a habit, much like brushing our teeth or taking a shower. It's healthy, he says, and fills our life with meaning.
