The Benefits of Therapeutic Art
Posted by Juliane Sunshine on
Now more than ever, there are plenty of reasons to try therapeutic art as a way to relieve stress and anxiety. At Craft-Ease, our paint by number kits make it easier to find calming crafts for adults and children that might be having a difficult time finding ways to stay positive and relaxed during the pandemic.
As many people are adhering to social distancing policies and stay-at-home orders, it’s become difficult to put mental health first. In fact, a recent survey found that U.S. adults reported elevated adverse mental health conditions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
We believe that just by relaxing with some fun and easy art projects, our customers can relieve symptoms of stress and anxiety. Our kits offer a sense of achievement, creation, and fulfillment—all of which are integral to staying positive.
The Mental Health Benefits of Crafting
1. Provides a Sense of AchievementOne of the best parts about art therapy is that it helps people discover their inner creativity. All it takes is a little concentration, and those negative emotions and self-doubt may take the back seat once an unexpected masterpiece comes to life.
2. Helps Boost Morale
Gaining confidence is easy when it comes to paint by numbers or any other types of art therapy. Once you’re in a mental space and allowing creative thinking to flow, you can feel more comfortable and confident about your ideas and passions.
3. Release Negative Emotions
Rather than turning to drugs or other harmful activities to cope with stress, anxiety, or depression, art therapy allows you to express and release those negative emotions in a healthy and relaxing way. As many people are experiencing higher levels of stress during the pandemic, using art to escape from daily triggers can help you to experience more
