Whether it was doing the kitting or learning to play a new instrument, the Covid lockdown made people more creative, a new study says. Researchers in Paris have surveyed hundreds of people about activities performed during the first lockdown at the start of the pandemic more than two years ago. Overall, based on almost 400 responses, the team found that people were forced to adapt to a new situation and'rethink our habits', which bred creativity. The researchers also acknowledged that pandemic and stay-at-home rules'restricted our liberties and triggered health or psychological difficulties', however. The new study has been led by researchers from the Frontlab at the Paris Brain Institute in France and published in Frontiers in Psychology.
