Reappraising your emotions can boost your creativity

Good news if you’re not feeling very creative right now (or don’t think you’re a ‘creative person’) 

Apparently using cognitive reappraisal can lead to greater creativity, especially for those who are not particularly creative thinkers.

Many of us probably already know about cognitive reappraisal (reinterpreting or reframing the meaning of an emotional situation to change your emotional response to it) from CBT, but how cool is it that it can be used not just for emotional problem-solving but also for enhancing creativity?

I’m going to give some thought to how we can use this in co-creative workshops, whether internally with client teams or with consumers
