Any art form is essential to live a good life. Creating brings calm and contentment into our daily routine. It comes from deep within and is a very personal part of who we are. It’s about unleashing our innermost beauty into a tangible, materialized form and a way to share who we are with others.
While in college, I remember how peaceful it was to walk into our art classroom. Our teacher always had relaxing music playing and every student always seemed happy to be there. We were proud of the sculptures, drawings, paintings… basically anything we produced. Personally, it really gave me a sense of fulfillment.
The good thing about art is that it can take on various forms and it’s not that hard to get creative either! Write in a journal, put together an outfit that makes you feel radiant, pick wild flowers and arrange them in a vase, beautifully dress your table for dinner, paint an accent wall in your home your favorite color… these are all creative acts that truly feed your soul, keep you feeling your best and who knows… you might end up creating something really cool to frame and hang on a wall!
