Art is RelaxingOur worlds are crazy busy, and getting crazier every day. It can be difficult to find a good way to relax and calm down.
We've all heard about meditation and how good it is for us, but meditation is hard! It can be very difficult for newbies to put down that smart phone and turn their focus inward. If you like being a little more active, but still need some peace time, art might be the perfect solution for you.
According to this Washington Post article, sitting and creating art is almost just like meditating. You calm your mind, relax, and let your brain focus on one thing. It's calming because we rarely let our minds focus on a single thing, and making art can help us get "in the zone" and Zen out. You don't have to be a master artist, just grab some tools and give it a try!
You can paint, color, doodle, or whatever makes your heart and mind happy. Try it today and see how you feel.
