I believe this to be true. At least for me.
Once a week, every Saturday to be specific, I let my creative juices flow. I don’t think about work or whatever I do (or did) for the week. I usually play (the keyboard and flute at home and at the mass) to get me recharged.
I extremely recommend this. Go ahead. Find something creative to do. Write poetry. Blog. Draw. Paint. Sculpt. Play the guitar or whatever musical instrument you fancy. Sing. Whatever creative talent you have. Spend a little time on yourself. You’ll face the week ahead with more zest and become a better person for it in any case.
This is different from “passive” activities like playing video games, watching movies or TV. The point is to “create,” get “creative” and not imbibe some other person’s creativity.
This is also different from “family time.” You have Sundays for that. Again, this is time for yourself…
