All of us want to live long and prosper. We don’t plan for sickness, job loss, divorce or injuries. Often these experiences catch us by surprise and can dramatically change our lives. When they do, we need to find a new way of living, sometimes temporarily. Some may feel that life is less than before.
New Step for You Healing Art project can show you that life can be more, or in someway, better than before. True healing is not waiting for time to heal. It is creating the opportunities where healing takes place, and the process of mending can make us stronger.
Through Art we gain a sense of life’s meaning. When we create art, we make something that did not exist before and can preserve it to enjoy. Our interaction with art provides a break from the pace of routine, where we can notice the unique. You do not need to be creative to participate, only a desire to learn and enjoy the adventure.
Why is art important to healing?
– Reduces stress, and provides deep relaxation.
– Improves the immune system.
– Offers relief during emotional distress and sorrow.
– Helps speed up recovery from surgery or long-term illness.
– Increases energy levels.
– Accelerates the body’s self-healing abilities.
– Helps aid in better sleep.
The benefits of being artistically creative can be quite broad. It can improve lives by helping people improve their mental, emotional, and even physical states. It can raise the quality of life for many people, and it’s worth considering if it can aid you in some way or another. The benefits of creativity can be a catalyst for healing.
