Mental health issues have become a global epidemic, affecting millions of people worldwide. I recently came across a book, Your Brain on Art: How the Arts Transforms Us, that speaks to the transformative powers that creating and appreciating art can have on our minds and bodies.
The authors note, “In the same way that you might exercise to lower cholesterol and increase serotonin in the brain, just 20-min of doodling or humming can provide immediate support for your physical and mental state."
This aligns so much with the ethos of Art Life Practice and the scientific validation speaks to the potency of our mission, and invigorates my passion to spread the gospel so to speak, of the powers of casual creative expression.
Here are 5 ways our kits can help improve your mental health:
1. Reduces Stress and Anxiety
The soothing nature of watercolors can calm your nerves and reduce anxiety levels, allowing you to feel more relaxed and at ease.
2. Promotes Mindfulness
The act of painting requires focus and concentration, which can promote mindfulness and help you live in the present moment.
3. Boosts Creativity
Our watercolor drawing kit encourages creativity and imagination, helping you think outside the box and unleash your inner artist.
4. Enhances Mood
The colors and images you create can uplift your mood and boost your overall sense of well-being.
5. Fosters Self-Care
Taking time for yourself and indulging in creative pursuits is an essential aspect of self-care. Our kit can help you prioritize your mental health and make self-care a part of your daily routine.
