Healing through creativity

Art is great medicine for the mind and body

For some people, talking about things is the best medicine. For others, it might be an activity, such as exercise. Another therapeutic activity is working on art. According to nursingschools.net, which has compiled a list of 100 art therapy exercises, creating art is a means to deal with stress, trauma and unhappiness. Here are just a few of the suggested projects:

A perfect day: Draw what that would look like to you.

Get outside: Paint or draw to get closer with nature.

Have a heart: Fill in a heart shape with art representative of your feelings.

Get jiggy: Turn on some music and the let creativity flow freely.
