Various social and humanitarian disciplines are increasingly turning to psychological phenomenology in a development of everyday life’s topics. The developing field of psychology of everyday life in domestic science has a task of highlighting psychological perspective in studying of everyday life. A multidimensionality of world of modern man is expressed in the plurality of his/her existence contexts. Everyday life refers to a life context of human existence. In psychology its study is represented by different concepts aimed at a holistic description of person’s existence in a world. Everyday life is realized in different ways of existence and different life strategies of subject, including adaptive strategies, coping strategies, strategies of life creation. The degree of expression of individual strategies and their correlation in a daily behavior of a person provide a unique personal life style. The concept of life style being introduced into psychology by Adler as an explanatory concept of what happens to a person throughout his life, further develops in a number of concepts - types of life, life strategies, life orientations, etc., which are regarded as relatively stable characteristics of human behavior, determined by his/her personal characteristics. Modern reality changes a space of person's daily life by making demands to his/her ability to live in a changing world. Consequently, in modern psychology a special attention is paid to flexible ways of responding to challenges of reality. In this connection, the concept of everyday creativity is developed as characteristic of everyday life and people's activity. Personal characteristics associated with demonstration of everyday creativity are described in literature as well as the factors affecting it. Data about a positive impact of everyday creativity on personality, his/her psychological well-being, health, etc. are given. In general, everyday creativity is seen as having value for survival as a form of life design.

Keywords: life style, creativity, everyday creativity, life strategies, life design
