May is Mental Health Month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month! Let's talk about how Art can help with your well-being.

Here is some info from Scripps Affiliated Medical Groups:

There is a positive connection between art and mental health—artistic activities such as sculpting, painting, or drawing are known to lower stress levels and promote mental calmness. Creating art takes your mind off of your everyday life and provides a relaxing distraction. Worries are set aside as you focus on the detail of the art you are creating.

Another benefit of art is that it encourages creative thinking and imagination in kids and adults. It also enhances problem-solving skills. Because there is no wrong answer in art, people are encouraged to imagine their own solutions. This type of flexible thinking stimulates your brain and prepares it for complicated functions in the same ways that learning a new language does.

“To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.” — Kurt Vonnegut

Chronic health conditions are often accompanied by depression, pain, anxiety, and stress. Take your loved ones who suffer from chronic health issues to see beautiful art and help ease their worries for a while.

Going to museums and art walks provides a fun, imaginative, and positive experience for adults, kids, and seniors. Whether you learn something new, re-discover your passion, or have a pleasant escape, the health benefits of immersing you and your loved ones in the art are widespread. Take a day, connect with your imagination, and improve your health!
