How Art Can be Relaxing

How+Art+Can+be+Relaxing

Hubert Garbaczonek, Journalist

Have you ever been in a stressed mood or had an event close in the future that you were stressed about? Well, you should try doing activities like painting, sculpting, drawing, cooking, etc., because it is scientifically proven that art helps people relax. This is because creating art provides a distraction, giving your brain a break from your usual thoughts. You focus on all the shapes and colors in the piece of art that you forget about all the things going on in your life. Drawing, painting or working out your emotions with art is a way of getting rid of your sad feelings. “Essentially, parts of the brain that are associated with contemplation are automatically sparked when viewing art, even if they aren’t thinking about it critically.”  When a person starts getting creative, it’s an act of taking what has been built up in the mind and body and releasing it onto a canvas, piece of clay, etc. So art is basically a way of getting stress out of your system. And it’s not about becoming the next best artist in the country.The goal is to relax through art and have a good day. Remember that if you keep getting angry that you can’t paint something just think that it will be one of the best abstract paintings, just think in a positive way. Art is also fun because it is multiple things. Art is not only painting, it is cooking, 3D modeling, making music, etc., so you have many different choices of art to choose from. Why is art important in our daily lives? Because we are surrounded by art, and without it, the human race will not be as you know it. Art surrounds life, all people in every location, without us being aware of it. Art has existed as long as man has. It is a huge part of our culture, which shapes our ideas, and provides us with a deeper understanding of emotions, self-awareness, and more. The part of the day when you do art is when you get to relax.
