Dr Cohen’s research the centre for Ageing, Health & Humanities, George Washington University, claims the following benefits of creative activity:

•  Creativity strengthens morale. It alters the way we respond to problems and sometimes allows us to transcend them. Keeping a fresh perspective makes us emotionally resilient.

•  Challenging the brain can improve sleep and mood disorders.

•  Reading, writing and word games increase one’s working vocabulary and help to fend off forgetfulness.

•  Capitalizing on creativity promotes a positive outlook and sense of well-being which boosts the immune system and fights disease.

•  Having an active, creative life makes it easier to face adversity, including the loss of a spouse.
