Create the Gift of Peace and Joy for Yourself this Holiday Season

A hand holds a can of spray paint. The paint that comes out is multiple bright colors, and flows dynamically and joyfully in all directions.


I am a firm believer in the power of art to heal, relieve stress and improve our lives. Study after study reveal what is happening scientifically when people create or view art. This is a topic I have been reading about recently and would like to share with you here. 

For today, I thought I would start with a link to a very short, simple article that talks about how creating something stimulates the brain and relieves stress. 

As I have said before, You don’t have to be an award-winning artist to benefit from being creative. This holiday season, take some time to really enjoy the creative process. Whether you’re decorating your home, preparing a lovely meal or playing with your family, clear your mind and enjoy what you’re doing. Allow yourself to go with the flow and feel the peace and joy that creating brings! 

Happy Holidays!
