Whether you enjoy art or you’re quick to label yourself as “not the creative type,” art therapy can be a useful tool to help you unwind and destress.
Art therapy is defined as “a discipline that incorporates creative methods of expression through visual art media.” In layman’s terms, this means using art as an outlet to express your emotions and stresses.
Here are a few examples:
- Using an adult coloring book to self-soothe and wind down anxieties by focusing on the present moment on colors and shapes in front of you.
- Outline a heart and fill it in with words, drawings, or other types of images that represent your emotions.
- Choose paint colors that calm you and make a piece of art to hang in your bedroom.
- Grab a pen and paper and try your hand at a ‘zentangle’ drawing: https://bit.ly/3jkx4jS
