Art Therapy

Feeling sick? Feeling the blahs? Up, down, left, and right? Try picking up a little arts and crafts. Did you know that art therapy helps you to express emotions that you can’t verbally articulate? Art therapy focuses on the inner experiences. Try taking a piece of paper for instance, and just draw. Forget that you’re not an artist, allow yourself to disconnect. What do you see? how does it make you feel? Don’t be a critic… just express! What’s your story? Feel the motion in your arm, your hand, your body etc. Feels good, right?

Today I bought some pastels. For the record, I’ve never used pastels. With no direction, I just went ahead. The sensory input was an overload! It truly does something for me.
