Why Being Creative is Good For Your Health

As music professionals, we’re lucky to be surrounded by creativity everyday. Whether you’re a songwriter, performer, or working behind-the-scenes, flexing your creative muscles is a blessing that offers benefits to both your physical and mental health. And you don’t always have to be writing a hit song to experience positive results.
