Ask any artist, and they’ll tell you they just feel better after making art, myself included. If I feel off or have had a crazy busy day (or, let’s be honest, a day that just feels no good), I grab my journal and tool of choice and make something.
And regardless of what’s going on, I ALWAYS feel.
Research studies prove that making art can significantly reduce stress-related hormones in your body. Art has been proven to (and is backed by science) help us relieve stress and boost our mental health, which in turn, has a profound effect on our bodies.
And in this episode, we’re going to talk about why!
I want to preface today’s episode by saying I’m not a scientist or a psychologist of any sort. I’m an artist, duh! But being an artist for 20+ years, I’ve learned a lot and seen firsthand in my life and in other people’s life (mostly through those I teach) what it can do for you BEYOND entertainment.
In this episode, we discuss:
I hope this encourages you or inspires you to find new ways to incorporate art into your life, and hopefully some calm in the middle of the chaos too.
And remember — making art for the sake of creating is enough. Doing it for yourself is enough.It doesn’t have to be pretty or perfect, it just has to be honest. And that, my friends, is when you’ll feel liberation through art.
If you want to learn more about taking that honest art to the next level and creating freedom in your career by selling your art and making a living for yourself as an artist, then I encourage you to check out Color Course for Rebels!
Until next time, y’all!
