But, that is not all, art can also be used to heal the mind, body, and soul.
Expressing oneself through art can take many forms. Whether it be drawing, painting, dancing, or singing. There are countless ways for one to express themselves while also creating something beautiful in the process. This form of expression can have many mental health benefits:
1. Reducing Stress
The worries that plague our day to day lives can start by effecting us in small ways; whether it be uncontrolled emotions or simple headaches. But these stresses can lead to many major health problems, such as high blood pressure, back issues, and more. By creating art, one can have an outlet for the issues and problems that hinder our lives. It allows the artist to express feelings and emotions in a way that may be hard for many to vocalize.
2. Increase Problem Solving Abilities
Creating art poses many challenges along the way. Whether it be picking the right color, singing the right words, playing the right note. However, this process of creating while also finding solutions along the way has been known to increase a persons problem solving abilities. Causing the artist to experience less stress and anxiety.
