10 Blogs About Creative Psychology

Studying the creative process itself (and its corresponding struggles) is useful for those who dabble in several different disciplines. Whether you knit, paint, write, sing, or conduct scientific experiments, understanding your mind and the minds of others is an undeniable asset. 

When I first started reading creativity blogs, I was glad to discover the broader topic of creative psychology (versus simple technical tips, sometimes in a domain not even relevant to me). 

Creativity Meets Mindfulness

Not only does thinking about your creative process help you become more aware, it also helps to ease anxiety, self-doubt, and negativity inevitably encountered while venturing into uncharted territories. 

The creative process is meant to be difficult. Embracing those difficulties through the act of gaining knowledge is a noble endeavor.

I occasionally write about systemizing, the Theory of Positive Disintegration, and bibliotherapy on this blog (three favorite topics to come out of my formal time studying creative psychology). 

If you enjoy aspects of this site, you’ll enjoy the below blogs as well. Happy reading!
