Lifestyle Art – Health and Well Being

There is growing evidence to show that Creative Activity is a crucial in maintaining Wellness and good Health.

It’s not uncommon to feel down in the dumps from time to time, especially during periods of hardship and transition. Thankfully, from simple doodling to singing your favourite song, moments of intentional creativity can come to the rescue no matter your current lot in life.

Creative activities also help the brain recover after illness, injury, or stress

Of course, other factors such as diet and exercise matter, too. But when it comes to caring for your brain, less stress is best.

 

The beauty of creating is that it doesn’t have to be elaborate or ground breaking. It can be just about whatever you want, as long as it’s unrelated to work inside or outside the home.

 

In an increasingly competitive world many people experience a loss of power and a lack of self esteem. I believe it is so important to develop a means to return the core existence of mankind to its primary concern. That being the real happiness of themselves and consequently those around them.

 

The tools of creativity seem to have become lost to many who think they are not worthy to be part of the creative world.

 

I believe Painting, Banging a drum or singing a song to name but a few are primal activities that have become clouded. This division from the person and their potential needs to be addressed for the well being of future generations.

 

A healthy creative life is essential to our well-being, period. It’s exactly what a person needs to fill her heart—and mind—with positivity and affirmation. Without a solid community, it’s easy for our mental health to crumble.
