Focus on The Act of Creation

Find out what you enjoy, what you loved as a kid, or what engages you, and do that. It can be finger painting, baking, cooking, collaging, oil painting, weaving, writing screenplays, anything that doesn't' make you tired while you do it.

The act of creation is itself a reward, and going for what you love doing without any expectations or stress makes the real art come out.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Start Your Art

Getting artistic is good for health, and your mental well-being. The creation process helps you:

  • Reduce stress and anxiety.
  • Improves your mood.
  • It helps you be a better problem solver.
  • Awakens your imagination.

When we think of 'art' we normally think of a painter, applying the brush on a canvas. But any person, having a creative skill in any activity, can be an artist.

The way a person talks to others, or how one writes, can be a creative expression. The ways a person can express his or her 'art' is infinite.

  • Any kind of creation is an act of God, and the creator feels better after the creation has been completed.
  • Art is Therapy, and is healthy for you, just like eating well, or regular exercising
Checking your mood, if you are unable to do creative work on some days, makes you understand yourself better. 

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.
