Inspired by Erin Robinson: Art to Relieve Stress
Did you know that tapping into your creative side is known to reduce stress? Most of us were aware of this as children…remember the days of play-dough, water painting, or simply spending time with your favorite coloring book? Sketching and creating art can take your mind off of what’s stressing you, at least for a few minutes. Working on a project that’s been giving you gray hair? Try taking a break from it. Grab a sketch book, a pencil or paint brush, and leave your worries on paper. When you’re finished getting lost in the art, you should have a clearer mind and the ability to tackle your problems again.
Check out the work of one of the most creative women I know, the talented Erin Robinson. Throughout her epic career, she’s worked as a creative visionary for television networks and countless household brands including GAP, Sears, and Disney just to name a few. I stumbled upon these colorful beauties on her Facebook page and was inspired to share.
Sometimes with all of life’s responsibilities, we forget that we deserve “me time” and a lot of self-care. Taking just a few minutes a day to doodle or paint can give you clarity and the additional bonus of being left with something beautiful (or at least interesting) to show for it!
