Can Creativity Reduce Anxiety?

Absolutely. According to Johns Hopkins (hopkinsmedicine.org) About 1 in 4 adults will be diagnosed with a mental illness in any given year - any many of those suffer from more than one at a time.  According to studies (of note, one article on scrippsmag.com) Art can have a positive impact on mental health. It can contribute to your happiness, and overall mental health in amazing ways. There are so many ways you can incorporate art into your life, even it you’ve never identified as ‘creative’. 

If you've wanted to try adding a bit more creativity to your life but aren't quite sure where to start (oo even if you've been creative for a while, but want to learn more about the healing qualities creativity can have on your mind), I've created a totally free PDF to learn more, and to start creating today.

  • I agree with this, any kind of art / craft can be therapeutic, its a calm feeling and you forget all your worries etc for a while, an dif your writing things down too then that’s a great reliever in my eyes

  • Sixteen yrs ago I became seriously ill, had 4 major surgeries, and 3 NDE. After 7 years my 35yo son was diagnosed with rarest form of MS and transitioned 5 yrs after first symptom. Seven yrs later I’m being treated for PTSD. Playing in my craftroom is my lifesaver! It has saved my life! Patty, aka: Rainbow Butterfly 🦋
