A medical revolution has begun worldwide: doctors are being granted the ability to prescribe art as treatment. This is beyond exciting, and it’s should be celebrated as a breakthrough in modern medicine. As henna artists we have seen firsthand how art can benefit health.

Take a tally of all of the positive forces you’ve put in place: meditation, exercise, healthy eating, tea, art, positive thinking…hopefully, it’s a long list. You may still feel bogged down, and that’s okay because there are ups and downs: that’s life. However, you should still examine any environment in which you feel unsettled. Particularly the people around at the time.

Yes, okay, so we’re still in a state where we have to schedule self-care into our regular routine, but the positive is that we’re doing it! Society is finally moving into a direction where more and more people are adopting meditation, exercise, healthy eating, food for thought, and nature in their lives. As spring turns to summer – FINALLY – gardening is a fantastic way to take a time out for your mind and body while you connect with nature at an inspiring time.

Stress is a physical reaction to…something. It could be anything, really. You may experience stress when you get a bad grade on a test, when you have a fight with a friend, when you can’t find something you know you left in a safe spot, or when you’re about to go on stage. When we experience stress it is our body’s way of pumping us up to make quick decisions in the face of danger, also known as the survival instincts Fight or Flight.

Dedicated art therapy involves art as a medium and a therapist as a leader of the activity. It can be as simple as colouring computer printouts, creating collages or inspiration boards using images and words cut out from magazines, all the way to intricate oil paintings, pottery, and more. In addition to visual arts, art therapy also includes performance art like dance and music, as well as the vast genres of writing. One of the greatest benefits of art therapy comes in its many forms, making it widely customizable to someone’s needs, talents, and interests. Like any kind of skill, developing artistry to use as a therapeutic tool takes practice and time. The bonus is that the practice is a lot of fun, and that the learning can be as therapeutic as the honed skill.
