Everyone goes through an emotional funk every now and then. Be it ‘cause of a breakup, a fight with a friend, a row at work, or simply because you dared watch the news! But before you look to more traditional means to get yourself out of the funk, try art therapy a.k.a creative healing!
It’s a well-known fact that art helps reduce stress, anxiety and explore one’s emotions. So, the next time you want to lift yourself up, give your home a makeover and splash some art on your walls – after all interior design is a form of art, too.
Of course, buying art is not the same as art therapy – where a professional art therapist guides you and helps you understand your emotions. The principal is similar, though.
It’s more about the therapeutic process of creating art (in our case selecting art) that helps us cope.
