5 Creativity-Powered Benefits of Connecting with Your Inner Child

1- Storytelling

Storytelling is a creatively influential way of building communication and engagement. Stories capture your attention and make connections to build empathy. Think about how a well-told storyline allows you to become emotionally invested in the characters and their situations. An emotional attachment and shared experiences within a story create a bond and sense of community.

Reading the stories with vibrant animated characters such as the Zoonicorn collective introduces storytelling to younger learners. A Zoonicorn is a little bit unicorn and a little bit zebra and they visit dreams to help gain an understanding of life lessons through adventures. Each of the four Zoonicorn characters has a unique personality and story for us to identify with-

Valeo (Blue)- He's the Zoonicorn leader who overcomes shyness.

Promithea (Purple)- She is reliable, shy, and a fantastic secret keeper.

Aliel (Pink)- This is the spunky, fun one, that always is always zooming.

Ene (Green)- He is a joker who loves mischief and napping.

2- Humor

Animated characters often become more enjoyable and memorable by creatively appealing to our sense of humor. Finding humor benefits our physical health, mental wellness, socialization, and releases the joy of your inner child. Sitting down to laugh at the hilarious antics and remarks of characters may help decrease stress and boost your mood to decrease feelings of anxiety and depression. With just a little humor, we can boost morale and productivity in a more relaxed environment open to creativity and innovation.

3- Artistry 

Characters developed through detailed storytelling is an art form developed from style and technique. Stories are powerful ways to illustrate, inspire, and encourage individuals to create with a unique freedom of expression. Art is said to imitate life, and with a diverse exposure to creativity, creativity thrives. Bioworld, The Pop Culture Experts, are one of the industry leaders trending for their artistic insight, "We help cultivate self-expression."

4- Community 

Cartoon characters create a community of fans to engage with and feel empowered to share their personal stories. Individuals coming together to inspire other can be a huge part of a therapeutic process toward discovering or rediscovering your inner child. Building a community becomes a creative safe space to process experiences, converse, and gain insight.

Exploring the life and times of characters in stories in books, comics, movies, and series to look beyond their own life stories. Inspiring the pursuit of following the joys of their inner child sparks the motivation to see beyond the moment, to dream big.
