Enter the Art & Health Zone
with Stephanie Shorr
Art connects our inner and outer worlds.
Creating art supports health – physical, mental, and spiritual.
Following a personal health quest is preparation to create art much as an athlete trains for sports.
Positive outcomes result from art and good health practices.
Essential elements for health are healthy diet, regular physical activity, meditation, and sufficient sleep.
It’s possible to put the inner critic aside and approach art as play,
a time to enjoy exploration of color or line or form
without the pressure to create a masterpiece.
Everyone has an inner artist. Self-judgment can impede
the enjoyment of creating art.
The goal is fun.
More fun equals less stress. Fun and play equals happiness.
