Creating Art Relieves Stress

  • Activities like painting, sculpting, drawing, and photography are relaxing and rewarding hobbies that can lower your stress levels and leave you feeling mentally clear and calm.
  • Creating art provides a distraction, giving your brain a break from your usual thoughts.
  • The average person has 60,000 thoughts per day and 95% of them are exactly the same day in, day out!
  • When you get totally immersed in a creative endeavor, you may find yourself in what’s known as “the zone” or in a state of “flow.”
  • This meditative-like state focuses your mind and temporarily pushes aside all your worries.
  • Leonardo da Vinci said, “Painting embraces all the ten functions of the eye; that is to say, darkness, light, body and color, shape and location, distance and closeness, motion and rest.”
  • Creating art trains you to concentrate on details and pay more attention to your environment. In this way, it acts like meditation.
