I believe there’s a deep connection between art and mental health.
Be it dancing, singing, painting, crafting, sculpting or any other form of art, it helps a person to elevate their mental health status when they perform these recreational activities. There are millions of people, including me, who treat music as their best friend and best therapist during hard times. Even attending a concert or a museum can boost moods in some people.
Even I remember a point in my life when I was struggling a lot in life while my friends were having it easy. I drew a drawing with which had a line called ‘Line of Freedom’, with all my friends on the other side of the line but me on the worse side of the line, with a frowned face. I remember, that drawing gave me motivation to keep going and at look at the bigger picture.
That’s what art does! It helps you look at the bigger picture, gain confidence, have a better mood and get back to your life! In some cases, art can also help you find a place in a community and what better place is there to socialise!
Thankfully, the world also now recognizes art as a great way to reduce anxiety, stress, depression and loneliness, and feel relaxed and engaged to live life in a better, playful way. ♥
