The Weekly Challenge, 11th November 2019 - Starter for 10 **Full Challenge: http://dothinkshare.com/…/the-weekly-challenge-11th-novemb…/ ** Every day is full of things. Big things, small things, and all of the things in between. There are things we forget to do, things we would love to do, things we have to do and things we can’t wait to do. This week’s Challenge is set by Louise, who runs Manico PR. Louise’s job is to share all of the great things that the people she works with are doing. And now, it’s over to you... List 10 good things around you, about you, or that you find throughout your day. It could be anything from a plant, to a colleague, to your sense of humour, to a phone call. Celebrate your list by getting creative! You could take 10 photographs that captures each ‘thing’, and create a collage. You could write a poem or short story that includes all 10 ideas. You could doodle around your list. It’s over to you, Challengers - anything goes. Have fun, and get creative! #StarterFor10 #64MillionArtists Every day is full of things.

We have been enjoying a week on holiday in the sun, spying little birds flit about near the pool, reading, eating and swimming. #64millionartists @64millionartists #Stain #art #theweeklyhashtagchallenge #64millionartists #natural #inks “If you are cold, tea will warm you.

Over the years, many of our community members have told us that taking part in our creative challenges has lifted their mood and improved their wellbeing. Lots of you have reported that being creative, trying something new, sharing work and connecting with others have given you a boost. We wanted to know if our online creativity programmes really improve mental health and wellbeing, so we partnered with UCL Division of Psychology and Life Sciences to design Creativity in Mind: a research project with participants experiencing low mood and anxiety. Today is #NationalStressAwarenessDay and we are so pleased to launch the numerical data that show a ‘clinically meaningful’ increase in participants’ wellbeing” as well as a decrease in symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety.

Languages teacher, and loyal Challenge Ruth Hall invites you to sit down with your favourite hot drink, and get creative. Turn a tea bag into art! Make a lovely cup of tea, and use the teabag or the tealeaves to make a stain on a piece of paper or card. Experiment with types of tea to find different colours and textures. Turn the stain into something new. You could add features, a slogan, a background...what can you see? A dark and stormy night, a character, a woodland scene?
